MFT Wednesday Sketch 281 & Colour Challenge 45

The local store where I sell my cards suggested I make some Father's Day cards
for them to sell since my Mother's Day cards sold out. :)
So, I thought that the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 281 &
the MFT Colour Challenge 45 would work perfectly:
to make my cards, using MFT's Soda Pop.
I started by impressing my card backs using one of my MFT stax circle dies.
Then, I diecut all of my elements from white cardstock (except for the bottle
labels, which I diecut from vellum) and blended ink onto the bottles, caps and straws.
Then, I mixed some ink with water and flicked it onto my bottles
to give an appearance of bubbles.
I stamped the fruit and star circles onto some circles I punched
and tied some twine around my bottle tops.
I stamped the sentiment (from Soda Pop) onto a strip of teal cardstock
in versamark and heat embossed it in white.
Then, I stamped the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Father's Day).
For each card, I used the same colours, but switched up
the order of the bottles and the colours of the mats.

 Thanks for looking!
