Hello there. I have a selection of cards using the same stamp set from ‘Stamps by Me’. These images lend themselves to water-colouring, and there are lots of flower stamps in her designs, layering flower stamps, for the water-colour effect. Simply stunning some of her creations. I have, however, chosen to stick with plain old stamping….
This card is for the Cards In Envy challenge of Cheers to you, and so I thought this set worked very well. I played with the colours of the wine, using inks from Catherine Pooler, then Altenew. I also put a pink wine for something a little different.
The sentiments in that stamp set are very versatile, and I have only used three of them here. I also liked using the ink ring stamp under the sentiment, as I thought it added something to the rest of the plain card. I have seen this used as an actual engagement ring instead of spilt wine ring, and it looks great – kinda grungy.
I also played with base card colours, as I had a range of cheaper card as a freebie from somewhere – memory issues! – and actually liked the variety and how they turned out. These are very simple cards to make, and would be great for batch-making for ‘just because’ cards, even though they are large.
I am sure we all have a range of sentiment s which suit being placed with wine glasses……I would love to know if you have any quirky sentiments that go with wine and cheers cards……
