Case this Sketch 246

Hey Friends, I stopping in real quick to blog these birthday cards I made for a few guys in my life! One I had to put in the mail this morning and of course it took way longer to make than I had imagined!

 I took out this adorable Newton's Nook Cocktail Mix stamp and heat embossed in clear powder on water color paper. Then I brushed and blotted on some Distress ink with water following the Case this Sketch 246 sketch. Leigh did a good job designing this one!

The Cheers die comes with the coordinating dies for the cocktail glasses. I cut it with a matte gold CS and one layer of white CS underneath. I splatter gold paint all over. 
Ta ta!
