W is for wine

W is for wine...of course! Thought I'd get the gelatos out for a change for The Craft Barn dictionary challenge this fortnight. The background is made with layers of gelatos rubbed through stencils with a baby wipe, then stamping on top with a few highlights. The main image was stamped and watercoloured with the gelatos. A little distress ink was added here and there for shadows with the rings stamped in paint.

Materials used:
Stencils: Stampers anonymous harlequin, Clarity trellis, unknown brick
Creative Expressions stamps: wine label
Faber-Castell Gelatos: buttercream, butterscotch, iced chai, cinnamon, chocolate, red cherry, grape
Archival Ink: jet black, coffee
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint: blood orange
Distress Ink: black soot, vintage photo
gel pens, Stabilo All pencil


  1. Lovely make, the whole page has the look of an old wine bottle label!

  2. A lovely page with a fabulous background and I love the wine bottle/glass stains.

  3. A brilliant design, Claire. Love the combo you used and the lovely stamp.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. xx
