Thirsty for The Alley Way Lemonade?

Hi everyone,

Are you a fan of The Alley Way Stamps? Here is a card I created using a very small set from The Alley Way - Lemon Squeezy and what I like about this brand and particularly this small set - Lemon Squeezy is the versatility of creating very different cards each time.

This is what I did with two of the stamps offered in this set,

I used Memento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink to stamp all the lemons and sentiments.  I stamped a few additional lemons on post-it tag to use as masking.

Using Tim Holtz Distress Markers, I applied the colors using wet brush to the lemons and added very subtle shadow as well.

This is a clean and simple card design inspired by this week’s CASology Week 137 - Tropical Challenge.

So, is this making you thirsty already?  I am also submitting this to SSS Monday Challenge - B is for….Beverage!

Little additional thing I did for this card is to score four sides of the card base to create a very subtle frame, adding a little texture  while maintaining a simple design.

I hope you enjoy this card idea.  Check out other projects I made using this small stamp set here.
