Time to Chill-ax


I recently purchased this set from Taylored Expressions called Chill-ax and it reminds me so much of my younger sister. I first heard that word from her a couple of years or so ago and I just loved how it sounded! Needless to say, when I saw the sentiment on one of Taylor's sets, I had to get it! Anyway, I thought it would be perfect to use on this week's sketch (TESC111).

The image is recessed behind the die cut. To make the glass sparkle with the cold drink, I brushed glitter Smooch over it. You might not see it in the photo, but it's there and it adds a bit of sheen and sparkle to it and I love how I can just paint it on like nail polish!

SUPPLIES
Stamp: Chill-ax (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: White Pure Luxury (Gina K.), Banana (SU!), Ooh-La-La Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye)

I think I'll send this card to my sister, just for fun. Well, thanks so much for stopping by and -- just Chill-ax, Chickie!
