Cocktail Time

I used to love a cocktail especially on hoilday and the ones that were so full of rubbish and E numbers and dyed your tongue a funky colour were always the best tasting ones.

This stamp set from Sassy & Crafty which was part of the December release reminds me of fun nights in what now feels such a distant memory I sort of question if it was a past time or not

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by heat embossing the 3 glasses using the black embossing powder 

These were masked and the blistering blizard stencil was used over the top using the chipped sapphire.

The bottom of the card was masked and a panel blended in Wilted Violet

The sentiment was stamped and the panel was finished with black sequins

The panel was finiahed with the scalloped edhe frame and adheewd onto a card base.

The fluid in the glasses were then coloured

Thank you for reading 

Happy Crafting
