Sketchy Sunday {TG008}

This was not on purpose. Nope, the fact that I did Tiff's Sketchy Sunday sketch on a Sunday, and the same Sunday she posted it, and like 5 minutes after she posted it, was not on purpose at all. Nope nope.

You see, I was playing with one of my new wine images that I bought because one of my market customers suggested that old people drink a lot of wine, and a lot of my customers are old, and she said SHE was old (she was my age, so, well, yeah), and old people have disposable income, and old people still buy cards, so I have a whole untapped market out there with a wine theme, and yes, I bought some wine stamps.

So last night I was trying different colors with the wine and bottle and finally ended up with something I liked, but then I got stuck, so I went to bed to sleep on it.

This morning Tiff posted her Sketchy Sunday {TG008} sketch:

... and a light bulb went off inside my head. I excused myself and retired to The Captain's Table and made this:

The paper was a lucky find during one of my recent trips to Angela's. The wine bottle & glass image is from a Hero Arts set. The sentiment is from my last pile o'irreverence from Viva Las Vega Stamps. The red layer is from my remnant box. The text paper is from the SU First Edition DSP pack that sits at my feet at The Captain's Table. Both of the top layers were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

The two-layered ribbon was a little bulky, so I made the second card with only one piece of ribbon:

I really like how both of these came out!

At the last second, I decided to cover the wine glass with my Versamarker and clear-emboss it:

Okay, close-up shots in my world are a bad idea, but you can at least see that it is shiny. So there you have it - two wine cards DONE.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. great cards! i like the double-ribbon, but ya, extra bulk is bad...

  2. Wicked! Love the wine glass embossed and,the background (perfect!) the layout is so sweet
