Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest, Julie,  and the DT have made :-)

I used Wine Blueprints and Mini Blueprints Stamp Sets and Thatched and Splatters Layering Stencils.


I can hardly believe it but it is my son's 30th Birthday this weekend (I was a child bride ;-)) For his birthday I sent him a crate of wine and thought this card would be perfect to go long with it! 

I started by splattering some Distress Resist Spray onto some white watercolor paper and when that was dry I blended Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks over the top. I then spritzed with water and used the stencils to add some more design. 

When it was dry I heat embossed the blueprint bottle so that it would really stand out against the background.  I stamped the bottle and glass with Stazon Ink and coloured with Distress Inks. 

I made a 'bench' using a Planks Bigz Die for the bottle and glass to stand on and finished with a snarky sentiment and a Fluted Star . I added 1988 as that was the year he was born and I hear it was a good vintage year for red ;-) (not really, I just made that up ;-)) 


and I finished the inside using a Bigz Alphanumeric Cut Out Die Set 



So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

What great depth and detailing on this scrumptious card, Lols ... the collage-y background is fabulous with the sketchy bottle and glass ... and that sentiment is brilliant (it had me laughing out loud!)! Love how you took the design to the inside! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
