5 o'clock somewhere
Both the glass and saying are from DRS Designs rubber stamps. I used Stickles to simulate a salted glass rim and Copics were used to color in the image. One of the new Tim Holtz texture fades (Ray) way used for my oval background. I also a Distress ink pad (direct to paper method) to highlight the rays on the fade.
The blue background was created with my Copic markers and my airbrush system. I varied the distance and pressure of the airbrush trigger to get different color results. If you look closely, you can see fine light-colored lines throughout the blue background. I was able to get this effect by spritzing a rubber stamp (that had lots of detail) with Copic colorless blending solution and then holding the stamp down on the paper for a few seconds. By doing this, it moved some of the ink away from that spot and lightened up that area.
I randomly stamped the saying around the focal point and I then used a black Spica Glitter pen to highlight some of the words.
