I made this card with the brand new 5375 Grape Border stamp set.
It's so fun to color the grapes!
I used my Misti and inked up the leaves first with the Tombow 177. After cleaning the stamp set, I inked up just the grapes and then re-stamped it a couple of times to get a good amount of the 909 on the grapes. I pulled the color out of the lines then added the 177 on the palette and added more green to the leaves. I used 055 on the palette to add that yellow to the edges of the leaves. I touched the creases of the grapes with the tip of the 909 pen to darken the grapes but I left some white on the grapes, also.
I then used the Misti to stamp the gate from the 5067 after inking it in 565 then 969 and stamping it off on scratch paper. I pulled the color out of the lines then added the "grape vines" from the 4867 Foliage Set 2 inked in 177. I pulled the color out and then stamped the dots (grapes) from the 5074 Bible Flower set inked in the 909. I dabbed at them with a wet brush tip. I painted in the gate leaving some white areas with the N45. I added some of it around the stones on the path, as well.
I stamped the grass from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 177 and then pulled the color up and out. I added the little flowers also from the 5074 Bible Flower set inked in 055. The sky is 526. Lastly, I stamped the banner from the 5202 Scroll Set inked in 969 then pulled the color out of the lines. I added some of the 526 in areas and some 565 where the paper rolls under. I stamped the sentiment from that same scroll set inked in Archival black ink. I thought this would make a great Thanksgiving card. Hope you give it a try!
Karen used the new Grape Border as well as our Bookmark Die for a fun gift tag on a bottle of wine. Make sure you visit her blog for more details on how to make this beautiful creation yourself!
