When life gives you limes...make margaritas!

Natasha Trupp has started a new website called Clean and Simple Stamping. Just like the name says, it will be focused on clean and simple stamping. I'm so excited about this new site. You should go check it out! She plans to post a variety of clean and simple techniques. One of her ideas is to post some fall to sketches. You know, those quick, simple sketches you return to time and again. Last week she posted this sketch, and I finally had a few minutes to play along. I've been wanting to find a way to use these new A Muse stamps, that I bought a couple of months ago, and I thought her sketch fit the bill.

I love the sentiment! I have another one that says {got margaritas?}. How cute is that? Here's a close-up that shows I added Crystal Effects to the inside and outside of the glass to look like there's liquid inside and Stickles for the salted rim.

Ink: Gable Green, Certainly Celery, Green Galore, Wild Wasabi
