Happy Chardonnay


Wine is always a good theme for men's birthday cards, and while I was rummaging through my stash of stamped images (I stamp extra images as I'm making a card, store them and usually forget about them) I saw this image.  I was still in sloshing mode so I sloshed on a bit of Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint Distress Ink and trimmed it down.  Also in the forgotten stash was this tweed background panel which I'd already coloured and I thought the two went together really well.


I made the card as a reminder for the Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Bottles challenge which ends soon.  You've still got time, if you're quick - and you don't have to alter a bottle, you could create a card or other project with a stamped bottle image.

I'm entering this into Time Out Masculine Birthday challenge, which is ending soon too.


ETA: Also entering into Simon Says Monday Challenge: Big Stamp.

  11. Your "sloshing" technique is quite beautiful! A lovely, artistic look. I love the colors on the background panel - mainly subtle with some pops of brilliant orange!
