Happy announcement: I'm so, SO excited to be back on the Drunken Stampers Design Team! I was a member early on, when there were just a few of us (and we all still got carded when ordering cocktails), and my, has this team grown in the past couple of years! These ladies are brilliant and super talented, and I'm a lucky duck to get to hang out with them in the virtual Drunken Stampers Lounge. Come join us, won't you?
This week we're taking a trip to the beach (hooray!!!), and naturally my mind made a beeline straight to the Caribbean, home of the yummy Mai Tai. Here's a recipe from Imbibe Magazine for you to enjoy. I'll wait while you mix one up. Cheers!
Okay, we're back! My piece for our Beach-y Challenge was inspired by that classic Go-Go's song, Vacation (all together now: "Vacation, all I ever wanted/Vacation, had to get away..."). It's a simple little card with a Distress Ink watercolored background, but the addition of the brand-spankin' new TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS GLITTER as sand gave it some oomph. The little pink bikini top is made from Tim's Trimmings set, and the bottom is... well, it's the corner of a baby wipe. Dylusions Bubblegum Pink Spray Ink gave it that wild raspberry color. The Polaroid frame is a cool little stamp from Lawn Fawn, and the background paper is from the Idea-ology Destinations set. The Corked Vial is filled with the same Antique Linen Distress Glitter I used for the faux beach.
But, enough about me. We want to see YOUR take on the Beach Theme! Check out the post at the Drunken Stampers blog for the deets, and the catch some inspiration from my brilliant, drunken teammates. You have all the way until Friday, August 16 at 11:59 PST to post your creation, so enjoy another Mai Tai while you ponder your design.
Thanks so much for joining us on our beach excursion! We can't wait to see what you do with it, and hope you have an utterly spectacular day!
