Soda Pop

Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketches where the adorable and talented Linda Callahan is our hostess this week.


When I saw the sketch a few weeks ago, I first thought of using leaves for the "Any Shape" elements, but when I was looking through my dies, I found these soda pop dies and thought they'd be perfect.




I die-cut the bottles then sponged some Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron ink onto the bottles, fading out towards the top.  I stamped and adhered the labels and the sentiment panel.  The card base was lightly sponged with Peacock Feathers ink focusing in the area the bottles would be placed.  I finished with a silver thread nest behind the bottles.



Thanks for visiting.  Check out the fabulous creations made by the rest of the design team and I hope you can join us this week.


Products used:

Stamps:  Soda Pop (MFT)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers
Cardstock:  White, watercolor
Dies:  Soda Pop Bottles (MFT)
Accessories:  Silver Thread

Cheers
Karren

Such a fun take on the sketch, Karren! I love that you chose 'Lemon and Line' to ink the bottles, and adding the nest of thread behind them is the perfect touch! I'm putting these dies on my wishlist...they're so cool!
