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!

Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Scrapbook.com, Simon Says Stamp, Ellen Hutson LLC, Gina K, Sizzix, Hallmark Scrapbook, Amazon, and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra but remits a small percentage of the purchase price to me, which helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
