Conserve Water, Drink Beer

Hello! I got new stamps from PinkByDesign in the mail yesterday...So I decided to play with em today! I used the NEW background stamp called Bubbly. I inked up the stamp with embossing ink and then put Tim Holtz distress ink over it and stamped on white cardstock. I heat embossed that with clear embossing powder. Then I used 3 colors of distress inks until I got the look I wanted. I cut the beer from the Smiley Cards cartridge and dry embossed it. Then I added 3 coats of UTEE to make the glass look real. After the last coat melted, I popped it in the freezer for a sec to make it crack a little. I swear it looks cool in real life.

The AWESOME sentiment is from the Just 4 Men set from PinkByDesign. I added Distress Rock Candy stickles to the foam...it's a really cool grungy look in real life! I hope you're having a GREAT Saturday!!!

CHEERS!
