This is the card I created for the Survivor contest on The Stamp Shack. I also think I will be sending this card to my mom for her birthday. We always tease her about the buckets of margaritas that she buys. Of course we ignore the fact that the bucket lasts her ten months!

For this card I dusted off my prisma pencils and gamasol and worked on shading a bit. I have been on the fence about getting copics or some other kind of alcohol markers. However I still haven't perfected the colored pencils so I think for the time being I will concentrate on learning to shade well with the pencils before I invest the chunk of change that markers will cost me.

Card Details:
I'm not sure where the stamp came from, I received it in a RAK once. I stamped it with classic black. The "salt" is coarse glitter. The background is created on glossy card stock with sponged marigold morning, pumpkin pie and cranberry crisp inks.
