Wine themed cards | Colored ink stamping

Time to break out those colored inks. This Simon Says Stamp set is great for those solid images, and besides there is nothing wrong with a little bit of wine!

The above card I used Gina K Design inks in the blue, orange and gray color. After stamping all those images I used a stitched rectangle die set and cut the whole panel..... made me a bit nervous but it turned out! Just take your time. I used the magnetic sheet that I store the dies on to help align them so they wouldn't move around and kept them in place with some washi tape. Using white embossing powder on black cardstock always reminds me of a chalk board, particularly when combined with a fun shape.

Both of these cards are for two challenges.

Color Throwdown challenge: #477

For this card I used Distress oxides ink to stamp on the kraft cardstock, no water needed. You could also use colored embossing powders or other pigment ink. To achieve the splatter I used Distress oxide ink reinkers in the coordinating colors and with a water brush lightly tapped it over the white cardstock. The sentiment was heat embossed in white on black cardstock, and then to add some glitz, I completely covered the strip in Spectrum Noir glitter pen. I used a light tan prismacolor pencil (Sand) to color in the corks and glazed glossy accents over each one.
