Using those Aqua Markers again! Cheers Sweet Stampin!!

I've been practising again with the new AquaMarkers and this is the card I made for my BIL.  Firstly, can't believe how much I'm using the Flipping Men/Women stamps that I bought really because they were a bargain but they're proving to be very useful!! 

As I said, coloured with the AMs and then I distressed the edges of the white card stock with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.  I followed the sketch over on Sweet Stampin which was very simple and therefore perfect for a male card.  I've glossy-accented the beer glasses and the puddle on the floor  and used a little glitter on the froth.  I used tiny brads for the studs on the barrel. paper is from the Capella pad from Basic Grey and the sentiment comes with the stamp set!  Oh yes, and the sentiment strip was punched with an EK Success bracket punch that my fabby friend Lesley gave me for my birthday!

Rather liking the new Aquas! Wish I could stay and play but have to go to work -boooo!!!

I love your take on this sketch, Julie (thank you for joining us at Sweet Stampin!!). Brilliant use of the bracket punch and brads to mimic the centre "ribbon" and I love your glossy extras and the sentiment. Excellent card! Love, Lesley x
