Hi Crafters,

The weather has certainly changed in this neck of the woods. Yesterday was rather chilly compared to recent days and then there was the rain! With the nights drawing in now too I think we are heading towards Autumn a little soon for my liking.
Never mind, it's warm in my craft room and I've been busy making as usual.

Italian Grapevines Stamps and Dies from Heartfelt Creations
Distress Oxide Inks
Sentiment and Background Stamp - Honey Doo Crafts

I began by creating an inky background using Distress Oxides and splashed a little water on for the mottled effect. I then stamped the bunch of grapes on my background using the same colour Distress Oxide ink. After stamping and die cutting the Heartfelt Creations grapes and vines I coloured these with inks too and added a little white pen for the shine on the grapes.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Brown Sugar - #292 ATG
Sweet Stampers - #35 Dies and or Punches
Ally's Angels - #25 ATG

Have a great weekend!
