Wine Too! - watercolour, Perfect Pearls embossing

Cheers to you, let's share a nice summer glass of wine and drink with a joyful heart.

My card features an image from Unity Stamp Co watercoloured with Neocolor II on a stamped background with Perfect Pearls.

Putting It Together

Sometimes I don't really like a card I've just made. It will bug me, even if I can't put my finger on to why. This card came out one such card. But, instead of one card, I made two.

I stamped wine drinking girl from Unity Stamp Co with Fog ink and then watercoloured her with Neocolour II crayons.

Initially, I paired her with another Unity stamp and a wine-y patterned paper, but the layout of this wasn't jelling with me. Partly it was the darkness of the background paper, partly the positioning. Sometimes things shouldn't be shoe-horned together. I took the girl off and finished a card with the sentiment: Wine!

I decided to make a background for the girl that was much lighter. I used a sheet from the Lawn Fawn watercolour pad, stamped it with Versamark using a Just For Fun background stamp, and then brushed on Perfect Pearls.

The Forever Red is a lovely tone on tone with the dark reddish paper from the pad. 

I did a dry layout before adhering the elements. I trimmed the background and put the girl at a tilt. I had originally thought about putting a sentiment or something more but the simplicity of these two together was very appealing to me. I also added some blush pink pearls.

Inside, I stamped the sentiment and added a die cut bottle and wine glass.
