The theme challenge for Stamp Ink Paper is “Natural Elements”. I had a long day so a glass of wine sounded good which made me think of the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set from Stampin’ Up! That’s a natural element if I ever saw one 🙂 . I decided to use my natural elements with the sketch from Mojo Monday.
I used the Woodlands TIEF for the vanilla panel. Then I added the Burlap Ribbon across the panel and adhered it on the back with Fast Fuse. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the corks. I don’t use this tool often but it sure comes in handy when lining things up. For the grapes I used the elegant eggplant marker and the Always Artichoke marker for the leaves. Huff’d a few times and stamped it. I colored the grapes and the leaves with the Clear Wink of Stella right after I stamped it so the colors would blend. The sentiment is from the Circle of Spring stamp set. I stamped the Happy Birthday after I had stamped the cork with Crumb Cake, stamped off. Step in Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles. I have a few friends that I think would relate to this card…..
Have a great Sunday and thank you for stopping by today!
