Then it was colored with Copic markers and die cut and embossed with the Labels Nestability from Spellbinders. Used BG paper from Making Memories. Added some buttons and dots around the main image and frame of the card.

Here is anather card I made this time it is for todays Ways to Use It challenge - to use Alcohol inks and for Taylor's Anniversary challenge using the sketch of Monika Davis.

Stamped the wine bottle from the Wine Lovers stamp set of Crafty Secrets Clear Art stamps on acetate with Black StazOn ink. Colored the back side of the acetate with Ocean Green Copic markers. The I stamped the bottle image 2x more on cs that was sponged with Galaxy Gold and then onto a gold paper. Cut the pieces out for the label and the bottle cap. Tier a sheer ribbon on the neck of the wine bottle. Die cut 4 separate pieces of cs and DP (K&Company) with 4 different sizes of circle scallop nesties. Then stamped the grapes 6x on white cs with Onyx Black Versafine and colored it with Tombow markers. Each of the grape images was cut and placed on the card. Stamped the sentiment on the center scallop and added sticker across the bottle.
