Bottom's Up

Yesterday's challenge on SCS was called "Bottom's Up." The idea was to come up with a card using alcohol inks, markers whatever. Hum...alcohol...right up my alley. Now, now, remember I just got all those markers. I put my thinking cap on, started "bending my elbow" and came up with this...

I needed a drink doing this one... :o). The "tablecloth" is paper pleated and machine stitched. The "window" is a stamp from my stash. I cut a piece of CS the size of the stamp and paper distressed the edges for texture. The window panes were spattered with 2 colors of blue ink and then glittered to make the stars. The "curtain" is lace that I threaded with embroidery floss and then attached with brads. I used my Nesties for the "wall plaque." Textured CS was spattered to make the "wall" above the ribbon "chair rail" and the striped BT paper from CTMH "That's Amore" is the wall paper. I stamped the glasses, colored them with my alcohol markers, cut them out and attached with 3D foam adhesive. I used my Nesties to make the "wall plaque" and just hand wrote "cheers."

Paper: CTMH - That's Amore, Colonial White Texture CS, Colonial White and Cocoa CS, gingham paper from my stash (unknown)

Stamps: Window and drinks from my stash (unknown

Ink: CTMH - Moonstruck, Crystal Blue, Blush, Cocoa

Accessories: Nesties, Cuttlebug, Sewing, 3D foam adhesive, lace, embroidery floss, brads, Cocoa Ribbon, Prisma Glitter, Prisma Markers

I'm off to see what "trouble" I can get into today! :o) For now, Happy Crafting!
