Wine and Bears

This week's challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches is sponsored by Stamp Fairy. Our fabulous sketch was designed by Jessica. This week I made two card following this great sketch.

I created my card by duplicating the sketch....no sideways or upside down for me this week, but I did a mirror image sketch on the second card!



The 'Vino' stamp set from Technique Tuesday was used to create this card. First off...I love' wine' and I love  'Tuesday Morning Sketches' so it was only fitting that I should combine 'Wine' and 'Tuesday's'. After stamping the grape bunches multiple times (for the background) it was colored with Prisma colored pencils then blended with Gamsol. The wine bottle was stamped on a piece of acrylic, fussy cut and then the back side was colored with a Sharpie marker to make the whole bottle 'green'.  A piece of dark green cardstock was paper pieced to the back side of the bottle to simulate the amount of wine left in the bottle. The glass was also stamped on acrylic, layered on a piece of vellum, fussy cut and then burgundy cardstock was paper pieced to simulate the wine in the glass. Gold embossing powder was used for the sentiment.

This second card used a delightful image from the Stamp Fairy called 'Donna and Donny'. It is the mirror image of the sketch.


These two adorable bears were colored with Prisma colored pencil and blended with Gamsol. The DP and ribbon is from a Heidi Grace collection that was purchased at JoAnn's. Stickles were added to the hearts and the flower for a touch of sparkle. This card is being submitted to the Card Crafters "bear with me " challenge and the Paper Pretties "Valentine" challenge.

Okay, I totally love both cards!! I'd love to have the wine (I am not a wine drinker, but my older sis is and she'd love this). The bears are just awesome. Two cards-amazing work.
