Today I have something to show you which is most unlike me!! As you will know if you're a regular follower, I've been dabbling a bit with Distress Inks recently, and so I thought I'd try something a bit more suitable for a man's card and see what I could come up with. I'm amazed to say that I really like the finished product, which will encourage me to explore this medium a bit more. The stamps are from a Vintage set by Sam Poole which I believe are called 'Wine Label'. I made all of the papers on this card. I distressed the edges with walnut stain, then randomly stamped various images from the set over the bottom paper. The printed paper was done with a stamp from an old HOTP set. The bottle and glass were both coated with UTEE, then I put the bottle in the freezer for a few minutes, before cracking it to give it a really 'aged' effect. As always, I hope you like it, and look forward to hear your thoughts if you have time to leave a comment.
