I saw this quote on Facebook recently and thought it was adorable
(and applied to some individuals I know -
we won't mention names here)
It also works perfectly for the blog hop I joined this weekend over on
Stamping With The Dragon.
(By the way - the CODE spelled: STAMPING DRAGON).
Here is the link if you want to play along.
The wine bottle and grapes image is also from them. How cute!!!
The idea for the grapes and/or wine actually came from MFP Speedy TV - Simple Salutations Challenge 32 - Theme of Wine/Grapes with a sentiment.
I JUST received my Spectrum Noir markers and this was the
first time I've EVER used markers.
I really like them, but need some practice -
later I should probably head on over to their site and watch some videos.
I purchased these from Crafter's Companion and can't begin to tell you what
(I received a $5.00 coupon for "following" their site) and
SUPER fast shipping this company offers.
Doing my Happy Crafter Dance!
This shot almost looks a little distorted by I was trying to show the
dimension on this card and the
texture on the grapes which were spritzed with Goosebumps.
I printed out two images of the glass and bottle (colored them both)
and then cut one out and mounted it on top of the other with some foam tape.
I used my
to emboss and cut all my main pieces.
Don't ya just love the purple and chartreuse -
my color wheel tells me that they are
Direct Complementary Harmonies
(I learn something every day doing this :)
Distressing with Memento LuLu Lavender ink and a little bling.
Adding my homemade flowers
(Cricut George and Basic Shapes Cartridge) and some ink.
I shape them with a toothpick.
Message me if you want to learn how to do this.
A little time consuming, but worth the effort.
Particularly when you live 100+ miles round trip to the closest crafts store like I do.
The chartreuse ribbon is from a local Dollar Tree.
Wishing you a great day!
