Autumn wine tag with Wine Blueprints by Tim Holtz

Hello everyone, I'm here with a wine tag that I made for our September challenge where the lovely Debs chose the theme and will be your host. The theme is: Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness the first line of Ode to Autumn by John Keats. So we would like to see projects with autumn colours, fruits, flowers, anything which reminds you of early autumn.

For me early autumn remind me of grape and wine making. So I made a wine tag with Tim Holtz Wine Blueprints stamp sets, the big and the small one.

For making this tag, I cut out a wine tag shape with MFT Wine Tag Die-Namics from Neenah Desert Storm paper. I stamped the image of the bottle, I masked it and then I stamped the grape. The text is from a Penny Black stamp set, called Autumn Splendor.

First I coloured the images with Copic Sketch markers, then I continued with pencil colouring.

In the end I splattered my tag with brown ink (Walnut Stain Spray Stain). I also inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.

So if you have an autumn project, please don't hesitate to join our September challenge where a randomly selected winner can have a £20 voucher in the Country View Craft Shop.
