Visible Image - Happy Hour

Hellooo!  It's Happy Hour at Visible Image with the fabulous Cocktails And Dreams stamp and die set.

I wanted a glossy, neon Happy Hour sign so I stamped the words in Catherine Pooler Pixie Dust ink then infilled with the lighter Sixteen Candles ink.

Then I added white highlighting with a Posca pen and dark lowlighting with an Emott fine pen, and glazed the letters with Lawn Fawn clear glaze.

For my bar-top I scored a strip of white card every half inch then swooshed Distress Inks over the whole strip.

For an urban/industrial look I wanted to use the Distressed Brick stencil.  When I was placing the stencil I wanted the gaps in the brickwork to surround the words, but realised that the Happy Hour was too low so I started my stencil further down, then chopped the top off afterwards.

I stamped and diecut several glasses and accessories then set about colouring them.  First, the Blue Lagoon:

Then the Mojito:

And lastly, the Strawberry Daiquiri:

Then it was time to assemble.  I placed the glasses at slightly different levels to imply depth.

Here's a few close-ups:

I cut the citrus slice in half for one of the cocktails:

The sign is very tactile:

Here are all the Visible Image supplies used:

All these and more are available at the Visible Image store, pop over and take a look!
