Let's get this party started!!

I LOVE iced tea!
I make at least one gallon of sweet tea per day for my family!
The sweeter, the better, too!

For my first card, I used SugarPea Designs 
I started out by creating the background with Oxides
I used a brown pen to draw the wonky lines boarder
I  dipped my fingers in water, and flicked the water over the background, then using my water pen, I grabber some of the Oxide colors and dipped the pen in some water, and flicked the color on top of the water marks until I reached my desired effect.
 I used my heat gun to help dry it a bit faster

I also used the stamp set 
Such a cute set!! I love it!!
I love the fonts, and the super cute sentiments!! 

Here is a second card I made for the hop
I decided to cut the cup from velum for this card...
I colored on top the velum with Copic markers...then I get this bright idea...yeah, right?! I will use my colorless blender to "make ice" 
It doesn't look great, but, I didn't hate it. 
I used a flourish I had, and some little flowers
I had a small piece of glittered tulle just laying on my table,
 so I added it to the lemon, and lime then I trimmed it
