Good morning stampers! Friday morning I created the card I'm about to share with you, but "life" got in the way. We sold our treadmill, which lead me to clean (way too much), which then made me spend the rest of Friday and Saturday in bed! I should and do know better, however, even though I was in terrible pain, it felt good to get something completely accomplished. I'm still sore today, but not bad enough to hold back this card another day. :-)
This is not a Christmas card. It is, however, the perfect card to send out after Christmas to anyone you may have missed or with whom you have recently reconnected. It would also be a perfect Happy New Years card for anyone who doesn't send out Christmas cards. The cards and envelopes I used were from Paper Source. I don't think they have them anymore as I got them on clearance last year.
I hope you can see the detail of the image below. Initially, I colored the champagne with Copic E55 and went over it with the sand Spica pen. That wasn't quite getting the look I wanted so... I used a clear Gelly Roll pen (which always looks more platinum in color to me) and lastly went over both glasses with a clear Glaze pen. I think if you click on the image, you will get a bigger image and see more clearly what I'm describing. The clear Gelly Roll really did the trick though and no, I didn't clear Glaze the bubbles.

For those of you who are familiar with the SU! spots, you will notice that I have a spot in my pic below of Soft Sky, which was an In Color from 2007-08. Since I don't particularly care for the SU! ink pads, I buy blank spots, ink them up with any new colors that come out and voila! I have my own little pads for the In Colors. I actually do this with any company's reinkers that I want in a small style pad.
Happy stamping til next time!
