If life gives you limes...

(If you're looking for today's OCL sneak peek, scroll down to the post below this one)



...Make Margaritas, baby! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions. All the sets and key ingredients that you've seen previewed this week are NOW available in the TE Store!

I used the Chillax set for my card today, added some Diamond Stickles as the "salt" on the margarita glass and to the swirls in the sentiment, and sponged the edges of the main panel and sentiment with Bashful Blue ink. Both Labels One panels are up on separate layers of foam tape. The brown ribbon, Baby Blue Medium and Suede Brown Dark Prism papers are part of the Berries & Cherries Key Ingredients kit.

Here's a picture of the inside of the card. It's kinda hard to see, but I stamped a lime in Bashful Blue ink on the blue prism panel.

I particularly like the shading you did around the glass, being copic challenged as I am, can you tell me which of those copic colors you listed was the one you used for that? Thanks!!!
