Drink the Red

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club December Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Since I had a little trouble w/ this month’s theme, I was helped out by the Inspiration Challeng (IC678)  & THIS is the picture that inspired me. 

For my card, I used only the wine glass image of the set & I used a black & gray Tombow markers to ink it. I used gray on the outlines that would be behind other glasses & black on the rest to stamp them. I didn’t bother masking since they were clear glass & are supposed to show through each other. After doing this 7 times, I added a little color w/ Copics to the glasses then stamped half of the greeting above them. I die cut a circle out of the top layer, then added a circle frame over the opening. The rest of the greeting, a single wine glass & a sprig of holly were stamped on this layer. For embellishment, I added a die cut & colored holly & used some clear dimensional glitter paint around the circle frame. You can’t really see it, but I also added some Wink of Stella to the wine in the glasses & on the holly leaves & berries.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
