Gin and Tonic

It's been a while since I have spent any time in the craft room (and it seems like this is how I start all of my blog posts these days). It's been a few weeks of beautiful summer which means the garden is growing way too much (why is it only the weeds that grow out of control but not the actual plants you want to grow?). Anyhow, today's rainy weather brought with it some mojo.

Inspired by the CASology challenge, where the theme is Citrus, I created this quick one layer CAS card. I love the fun STAMPlorations Layered Citrus stamp set which was perfect for the theme. I stamped the lemon outline in Distress Oxide and used the layering stamps to "colour" it using Distress Inks. Last, I stamped the sentiments and splattered some watered down Distress Ink for a grungy feel. I'm also linking up with Cupcake Inspirations where the theme is shades of yellow and Shopping Our Stash where the theme is One Layer Card. 

Stamps: STAMPlorations Layered Citrus
Ink: Tim Holz Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber, Distress Ink Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade, Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black

I have never had a lemon in a gin and tonic before. Might have to try it. Thanks for playing along with us on the CASology Challenge blog.
