Second Project for All That Scraps this week

MY BLOG CANDY IS A COUPLE OF POSTS DOWN!

I told you yesterday that I'd be back today with the second project I did for All That Scraps. I decorated this lovely Spanish bottle of wine. Now I don't know if you are a wine lover but I am very much so. I actually didn't like it though until I went on a crash course in the Italian language in the Italian Calabria District. At the time I wasn't very sure of myself and decided that I needed to do something on my own so I booked this course for myself, I do love the Italian language but the main reason was to see if I dared to do this on my own for two whole weeks.... I had a wonderful time! I stayed in this lovely cottage in a gorgeous orchard with all sorts of fruit that we could pick when we wanted too. I met lovely people and together we had lessons every morning in that same orchard. In the afternoon we went to the beach that was just a couple of minutes away and in the evening we had dinner together with always lots of wine on the table. When I got back... I loved wine :). The stamps I used to decorate the bottle are the AmyR Thank You Sentiments Stamps and the Gingersnaps Celebrate! Rubber Stamps. I did alter the Gingersnaps stamp slightly though. There is an olive in her drink but I got that out... no olives in my wine :). And When I was finished I noticed that I forget to paperpiece the bottum of the glass, but then I figured in Italy we drank our wine in little waterglasses and that tasted fine too. Here is a close up of the image and one sentiment:
And here is a close up of the second sentiment from the set that I used:

I think this will make one lovely thank you gift when I go to a barbeque or something one of these days. The papers I used are from My Little Shoe Box, the tule is from Bazzill. I again used my Peony Nesties and this time I used my Martha Steward Doily Lace punch. The White cardstock, beads, charm and waxcord are from stash. Colouring was as always done with my Derwent Watercolour Pencils, Copics and a touch of H2O's.

That's it. Hope you like it and it gives you ideas. Have a great day everybody!!
