A Toast for the New 2012

SDC NewYear Toast 2012

I wanted to create a water drop collision in the shape of a Martini Glass for my New Years card. Although others that I captured look more like what I set myself out to create, for some reason I choose this one. I like the slant created by the water drops colliding  which occurs when they start to recede.  The release of additional drops was done intentionally. Hopefully you will see what I visualized the final card to be.

I created the above image using The Time Machine.  For my fluids I used water with a bit of cream and blue gels on the flash units.

So here’s a Toast to YOU…  and a big wish to all of our family and friends for a very Happy New Year, filled with joy, love, health and peace. Thanks for a wonderful 2011 and we are looking forward to ringing in the New Year. Cheers!
