One Martini Addy-Tude

My new stamps from Stamping Bella arrived on Friday and this is the first one I inked up...I just love how sassy Miss Addy-Tude is!!!
The layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try. I hopped over to the Bella forum on Splitcoast to see what this week's Bella challenges were and the Show and Tell Challenge #2 is a fun one...to choose one of the Bella images that depicts what you do for a little bliss. Wait a second...I'm definitely not saying I turn to the bottle...LOL! But what I've really come to look forward to is our Friday nights out for dinner to our local American Joe's. It's our way of wrapping up the week and starting the weekend. We always sit in the bar area and usually have the same server, Cindy. We've gotten to know each other and she knows my favourite drink is their Pink Sangria...Mmmmmmm. I stay away from martinis though or it would be "one martini, forget the rest, floor"!

I stamped AddyTude Loves Her 'Tinis with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copics. And look...four of my new light copic colours made it onto this image! I used YG0000for the drinks, W00 on the lenses of her glasses and her shoes, V0000 on her boa so it wouldn't be stark white and BG0000 around the image. I {heart} the new light copic colours!!! To jazz up the image even more I added white flocking to her boa and crystal effects to her glasses and shoes (to make them look like patent leather).

The white card base is 5.25 inches square. I used black for layers and the rest of the papers are from Basic Grey Lemonade. I used an EK slim border punch along the vertical strip for some interest and stitched around the base layers. The black polka dot ribbon is sheer so I layered it onto black cardstock to give it more punch. The image is cut out with deckle rectangle Nestabilities and the sentiment (which is included with the image) is cut out with Labels Three Nestabilities. I layered a couple of Primas then finished the card with Marble Bella Dots in Pickle and Garnet.

So what do you do when you need a little pick-me-up? Come play along with the Show and Tell Challenge #2 in the Bella Forum on Splitcoast...of course there's a prize involved!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a very cute card. I love your blog, and especially how you list the Copics you use. I have placed an order for some for my birthday which is on the 21st so I am counting the sleeps until then. Then I can come back and see which Copics you use, and gain inspiration from here. Thanks
