Red Red Wine

This is the challenge this week set by my teamie, Helen. I immediately thought of a set of stamps by Creative Expressions, well two sets actually - French Vintage and Vintage Labels, for my tag.

I coloured my tag with antique linen distress stain on a damp tag so the colour remained really light. I then stamped the script from the set in antique linen distress ink, then the other stamps using barn door and fired brick distress inks. The leaves have been stamped with black archival on dark green card.

I distressed the edges of the tag and the label then coloured with fired brick. The flower is made from copy paper that had been underneath flowers when I had been spraying them. I just added a bit of fired brick and script using the same ink.

I have tipped the edges of the leaves and flowers with distress stickles. The wine glasses have been covered with glossy accents, and the wine botttle has been sprayed with crafters companion glossy spray.

So that is my entry. So pop over to the TIO challenge blog and check out all the other fab samples, then pop back in a day or so and check out the entries. We get some fabulous entries, so diverse! The main thing is, just have fun, and remember to use at least one real stamp in your creation. I look forward to checking out your entries.

Please feel free to leave a comment. I so enjoy reading them. Thanks for stopping by.
