Hola amigas: Muchas gracias por su participacion en el reto de colores!! El dia de hoy les traemos un reto divertido, tienen que hacer un proyecto dedicado a los ninos o a los hombres de su casa!! facil, no?

Beer Glass Card Platypus Creek Digitals

I choose to do this Beer Glass Card, I love it!!! It is different, funny and easy to do!!! I only used yellow and white cardstock (The Recollections), white gel pen, snow marker, black ink stazon and the sentiment from The Stamps of Life, set pops2eat.

Yo elegi hacer una tarjeta en forma de vaso de cerveza, me encanto!!! Es diferente, divertida y muy facil de hacer!! Solo use cardstock amarillo y blanco (The Recollections), gel pen blanca, snow marker, tinta negra marca stazon y el titulo de la tarjeta que significa "te mereces un regalo” de la marca The Stamps of Life, y el set es pops2eat.

To have the beer foam effect (TOP TIP), I used the snow marker (which I have since last year for Christmas cards) , I love to add textures to my projects!! 

Para darle ese efecto de espuma de cerveza use una pluma llamada “snow marker” (es una pluma, lo agitas, lo aplicas en el papel, lo dejas secar le pones la pistola de colar y listo, se esponja), me encanta aplicar diferentes texturas a mis proyectos!!!

I colored the digi stamp with prismacolors and I used the Chargers of San Diego Uniform color of 1978-83 (blue and yellow); since I live in San Diego was the first Football team to come to my mind. Here is the Origami Gift Card Holder opened. The pattern paper is from Stampin Up.

Para colorear la estampa digital use prismacolors, y use los colores del equipo de los Cargadores de San Diego de 1978-83 (azul cielo y amarillo); como vivo en San Diego, fue el primer equipo de football americano que se me vino a la mente. El papel decorado es de Stampin Up.
