Paper Craft Crew challenge 300 – Main Squeeze from Altenew

Welcome back to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge!  This week we have a sketch challenge. I had just cracked open some new Versafine Clair inks, so I wanted to play with them. I grabbed Main Squeeze from Altenew out of the bullpen (that’s what I call my bin of recent purchases) and started playing.


One thing I liked about the VersaFine Clair inks was the ability to get a good second impression, which is why I could use them for this four-step stamp set.

GOJUS! You could almost eat those citrus slices!

For the lemon slice, I didn’t have the darker shade of yellow in the Versafine, so I used Distress Fossilized Amber for the last two steps. Otherwise, I did step 1 with a second impression of the Cheerful shade for the lemon and orange and Verdant for the lime and a full impression in the same shades for step 2. Then step 3 was a second impression Summertime for the orange, second impression Green Oasis for the lime, and a full impression of the Fossilized Amber for the lemon. Step 4 was full impressions of all these colors. These inks are so beautiful and give you a solid impression with both rubber and clear stamps.

I heat embossed the sentiment on Bazzill Card Shoppe Licorice Twist and layered it up on Bazzill Marshmallow Chick with some of the Hai White & Black Polka Dot washi.

I added some pretty Crystal Reflections sequins from Simon Says Stamp to give it a little bling!

This makes me want a nice pitcher of lemonade…or limeade! Or orangeade! Wait, lets’ have SANGRIA with lots of fruit in it…I’m thirsty! I can see myself using Main Squeeze from Altenew many times…the images are just so gorgeous!
