TAWS Be Inspired #55

I've been in a crafting slump for the past couple months.  But nothing brings back my inspiration like The Alley Way Stamps.  This month's Be Inspired Challenge was a little more challenging but way fun:

At first, I drew inspiration from the ombre effect that berry lemonade has.  (Once you taste the berry-filled bottom...MMMM)  Not quite sure how, but my ombre background turned into a monochromatic flower pot.

Stamps-The Alley Way, Paper-Basic Grey, Coloring Medium-Prismacolor pencils, Ink-Stampin Up and Ranger

I was inspired by the summery feel of the photo, the ombre look of the glasses, the stiped straws, the splotchy pattern from the ice cubes, and the pink and turquoise colors.  The flowers come from TAWS's Awesome Blossom and the bird from Chill Out
