Like a Fine Wine, You Only Get Better With Age---PPA 263 and FMS 199

August 13, 2015

I am sorry that I haven't posted in a few days.  My mojo has been lacking lately.  Not sure if it is the heat in GA, or I just needed a few days to be a bum.  HA!

Well, when I saw the colors at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I knew just what I wanted to do!  So, I thank both of these amazing teams for helping me get back in the groove!  

I absolutely LOVE this color palette!  Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry are two of my all time favorites!  

I just received my new stamp set from SugarPea Designs-Wine Not.  Every time I look at this girl stomping grapes, I can't help but think of I Love Lucy!  I still watch that show when I can find it on TV.  She was by far, one of the funniest ladies that ever lived.  I hope you will enjoy my card.  

I stamped the girl with Momento Black ink and colored her with Stampin' Up! markers and a few Copics for dimension.  I fussy cut her and worked on the rest of my card.  

The base card is white.  I added a strip of Tempting Turquoise (Brights) DSP and then added a strip of Rich Razzleberry after I cut a banner on the end with my snips.  The sentiment is heat embossed using Rich Razzleberry ink and clear embossing powder.  I stamped a couple little birds delivering more grapes for her and colored those with the same markers.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!  I love to hear from you!

Have a fantastic day!
