Martini...anytime, anyplace, anywhere

Now does anyone else remember the adverts with Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter,  I can remember watching them and laughing as a child just like I can remember the gold blend ads. In fact I can remember the ads better than the programmes lol.

Anyway enough rambling onto the card. I have used one of the new MFT stamps I bought in Florida and she was so easy to colour in, think next time I might try a bit more shading but still happy with her. I used glossy accents on the glass but gave it a coat of copic clear spica first so it sparkles in irl. I stamped the greeting, from the big sentiments set (also mft) on a piece of matching patterned paper and when I put it on the card it looked lost so I used distress inks to make it pop . Would definitely do this again although it doesn't seem to match in the photo lol.

Image and Sentiment: MFT Stamps
Papers: Design House Digital "Time for Tea" by Sarah Schmutz (freebie)
Cardstock: Papermill

Brilliant Amanda! I just love how you used the backing papers - very clever, and the sentiment does 'pop'. You should be so pleased with this card. And the image is perfick - so go celebrate.

'One Martini. two Martini, three Martini - FLOOR' :))

I of course do not remember any of those 'old' adds as I am far too young! ;-P
I like this card though and the glossy accents. The shape of the backing paper is something different which adds a nice touch. xx
