Key Lime Martini~SS20

Happy Sunday!!!

It's time for another Stampin Sisterhood Challenge Jacquie has a fabulous inspiration photo.  Just create a card or project using the inspiration and link it up to the Stampin' Sisterhood Blog.    You can find all the details of the challenge  there.

You could win a stamp set of your choice from Rubbernecker Stamps. Don't forget to stop by my uber talented Stampin' Sister's blogs to see what delish projects they came up with with this inspiration!  The links to their blogs are found in the right hand side bar of my blog.

I colored my Martini Glass with Copics as if it was filled with a Key Lime Martini~Yummo!! Then gave it a good coating of Glossy Accents to make it look like a real glass.  I cut the slice of lime to the center an attached it over the rim of the glass.  I stamped only part of the sentiment onto the base.  Then stamped just the floor onto a hand cut arrow.  Popped the glass and arrow up over a Sizzix Diamond and Damask embossed layer and embellished with twine .

Hope to see what you create with this inspiration photo!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!!
