Coloring ATC...

Una fiesta sin baile es como una pinata sin confites. (A celebration without dance is like a pinata without candies) -Spanish Proverb

I recently Hostess'd (is that right? Hostessed, Hostess'd, Hostesseded... :D) OK, Hosted....an ATC swap for my LOSTie Sisters, the only theme was "Coloring," the main image had to be a line image that could be colored in. I decided to ink up some virgin rubber and use my new SeeD's Fiesta set that my good friend Edie sent me a few months back.

I stamped the Margarita on Whisper White CS and added a touch of bashful blue around the right edges, then added the greens, a bit darker on top than in the glass, then colord the Barely Banana over the green and on the rest of the glass. The lime is Gable Green and Green Galore like the drink. I "sugared" the glass with Stardust Stickles. The orange BG paper, which I embossed with the spots and dots Cuttlebug folder) is from the Magnolia/Wild Asparagus pack I got at Costco. So is the strip of patterned paper...I punched out the matching medallions to add at the bottom corner for some detail. I went online to find the Spanish word for "Cheeers" and stamped that with my Snap Stamps, adding the ! front and back with a Micron Pen.

Magnolia: All Together DP
