Here's to You

Here's my card for the current AEI♥U challenge.  It may be hard to believe, but this simple little card uses four--yes, four!--different Avery Elle stamp sets!

Here's to You-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
My focal image is the martini glass from the We Go Together stamp set.  I stamped it in black ink on a white cardstock panel, then used a fine tip pen to draw in the olive. I added just a bit of color to the image with some Copic markers. 

The sentiment is from the The Man set.  I stamped it next to the glass, then underlined it with an arrow from the Aim High set, stamped in Avery Elle's Aquamarine ink.  A trio of green enamel dots arranged around the image adds another pop of color and a little dimension, too. 

The fourth and final set was used to create the striped strip at the left edge of the card.  I stamped the long striped border image from the Celebrate set repeatedly along a light blue cardstock strip, alternating between aquamarine and green ink to create a pattern.  I adhered the strip to the edge of the card base, then layered the stamped image panel on top.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle The Man, Aim High, Celebrate, and We Go Together stamp sets, Aquamarine ink; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Memento Luxe Pear Tart ink; Studio Calico green enamel dots

other:  Sea Glass and Aquamarine cardstock (Avery Elle); markers (Copic)
