Curtain Call–Summer Snow Cones

Hi friends!  I am (ashamedly!) back with another late blog post today.  We had teenage girl crisis last night that resulted in a long trip to Columbus and back, and by the time we got home I had to get to bed or wouldn’t have been fit for work today.  (Although, I have a few co-workers who’d probably say I’m not fit anyday!) 

It’s time for another great Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, and this time around these oh-so-cool looking snow cones are our inspiration!

How I WISHED that I had some snow cone images to use for this, but I didn’t AND I resisted the urge to shop for some!  LOL  (Well, I resisted for a little bit but then I gave in to the urge, which you’ll see next week!)  Instead, I focused on the “rainbow” of colors here and created my own version of some cool refreshments…

Curtain Call-Snow Cones

I pulled out the very fun So Smooth stamp set from Lawn Fawn to create a nice row of summer smoothies for my card.  I stamped each one on Distress watercolor card stock, and colored each one with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Then I used the same markers to splatter the background with a little inky confetti, and added a paper umbrella to one of the drinks.  Now, in hindsight, I’d like to go back and add some glossy accents to each glass, but for now this is it.  But before I send this out to someone, I might just do that!

I got a little bit of inspiration for my card from this photo of Starbucks drinks, featuring the Orange, Green, Blue, Purple and Pink drinks!  OMGosh, I'm addicted to Pink Drinks!  They're so yummy!

Please be sure to stop over at the Curtain Call blog for all the challenge details, and join us!  You could be in the running to be chosen as the “Lead” and be our guest designer for the next challenge!  And be sure to visit the Crew for plenty of inspiration…
