D is for...


Yes, we have come to one of the Sisterhood's favourite challenges, D is for Drunk! I'd say Edna would have fit right in on the set of Mad Men, don't you think? For this challenge, we are looking for a drinking or alcohol-related card or other creation. And I have to say, I think I have come up with the ultimate all-occasion card for this one: 



See what I mean? There are so few situations that DON'T call for wine! 😂 In fact, making my first usable distress oxide ink background may have called for a celebratory glass of wine. I used some crumpled plastic wrap to splat the ink on the panel, drying and adding more a few times, then flicking water on and blotting it with paper towel to get lots of variation. The wine glass is die-cut several times and adhered together to build up a little dimension, since I'd never be able to get pop-dot tape narrow enough to fit that stem. While I don't know why the wine in the glass is striped, I did find patterned paper to complement it. 
If wine isn't your beverage of choice, there are other libations on offer over at the Snarky blog! Do come and join us! 

Supplies: white & Papertrey Ink soft stone cardstock, Studio Calico patterned paper, Papertrey Ink Uncorked stamps and dies, Neat & Tangled Cowbell & Concord & 9th Perfectly Penned stamps, Versafine onyx black, Simon Says Stamp schoolhouse red & faded jeans distress oxide inks, Ranger clear embossing powder, Winnie & Walter Katharine pierced rectangle die

This is fab, Lindsey! I've not taken the plunge with Oxides as yet, so am very interested to see what can be achieved with them. Have a great weekend, Jo x

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh super awesome sistah!!!
And I have yet to come across a situation that a glass of wine would not improve significantly (although in my case more likely vodka LOL)

Oh, wine is indeed my choice and I agree I can't think of a situation that doesn't call for wine. Love the background too. Just got some Oxides but haven't even unwrapped them yet. it's time! (for a glass of wine, at least.) xxD

Heee!Heee!Heee! YUP.. I AGREE.. with both your card and your comment that EVERY situation calls for wine! I am actually getting a bit of a reputation here in my new neighborhood of Creston, BC for always showing up with a bottle of red wine (Oops- GRIN) so I can definitely relate. And I LOVE your distress oxide background, too.
