"Cocktail Anyone" Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 67

"Cocktail Anyone" a card with Bling
Good morning everyone here it is another wonderful wet Wednesday here again oh roll on Summer. Well if it's Wednesday that means it's another Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Oh what a week I didn't have a computer for 3 days that was like have my left arm chopped off as I'm very left handed!!! After cursing this computer and spending hours trying to sort it out, and was told by the computer experts ha ha that I needed a new Modem/ Router which I went out and bought!!! and didn't work as the ADSL light didn't come on!!! A little man with his tool kit arrived yesterday went out side looked at the telephone wiring said that one of my wires was corroded and was fixed in 5 minutes NO JOKING!!!

On to some good news I went to Junior and Youth prize giving on Saturday for both of my sons, and they both got one of the top awards in their respective teams for Sportsmanship I was so proud of both of them and very unexpected.

We have another wonderful sketch from our very own talented Arlana thanks so much Arlana.

You've got to be in to win so what are waiting for???
For my card this week, I chose an image that didn't have a lot of detail or colouring in, not that I was being lazy I wanted to see what I could do with this image as I had to make it work. I even had a couple of nights laying in bed thinking what I would do. Firstly it was a tropical island and drinks. No that didn't work. So I decided to Bling the card up looking at having Cocktails in a Nightclub!!! Well that what I thoughts anyway.

Card Recipe:

Base: White SU card.
Papers: Plain Aqua paper and Pattern Aqua Paper form Magnolia Papers and the silver paper from Rosie's Studio and Aqua Bazzill Bling.
Image: Summer Quencher from Digistamp Boutique
Colour Medium: Coloured with copic markers, the glass was coated all over with Glass Finish, when that dried I coated areas with Kindy Glitz so that it looks like a sparkly glass. The straw was coated with a coat of white glass coat.
Tools: Martha Stewart Lacy Doily punch.
Embellishments: Peacock ribbon, flowers, gems from my stash and the Silver Corners are from Peel Craft.

I put the Cherries to the side of the glass as I thought it looked a little bare and white space there. I want some Cherries could I find any, no way not on your life. In the end I found a WHITE that's right white Cherry button why would they make a white one and I had to colour it with my copics cut the back off and mounted it with a foam pop dot.

Now you've seen my card pop over to my wonderful team mates at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see what wonderful eye candy they have put together for you this week!!!

Congrats on your son's awards!! That is always a nice surprise! Don't you just love it when you have computer problems. I was trying to work last night from home and my office computer is having fits. It never fails. It always happens when my boss or I trys to leave town.
Kathie, it is femo that was used for those little candy rolls. Aren't they cute. Arlana made them for a Christmas project that we didn't get done last year. I am hoping to get it done this year...we will see.
Anyway, your cocktail glass looks so real. It looks like you could dip your fingers in it and they would be wet. I love your sparkly paper and emblishments!

Congrats to you son's on their awards and I'm glad you were able to get your computer up and running again. It is always a pain when things go wrong. I am lucky to have a son who repairs computers but I will miss his attentive care when he goes back to school. Kathie, this card is so realistic. I can't believe all the detail you used on it. It is spectacular. Looks like you could pick it up and have a sip! I love the silver embellishment that you used. It does add that special bling! Have a great week!

Simple and Sweet said...

Wow Kathie! I just love all the bright colors and the sparkle you put in! It looks great!
