Challenge #18.-Red red wine!!!!

Ok everybody, grab your wine glasses and...

This new challenge is all about wine. We want to see wine glasses, wine bottles, people with wine glasses, grapes, etc. But also, it could be any project with wine or red colors.
So let´s have toast in Quirky´s behave and let´s star working.

Our sponsor for this challenge is CRACKER BOX PALACE.

And the prizes are:

First place: 3 digi images from Cracker Box
Second place: 2 digi images from Cracker box
Third place: 1 digi image from Cracker box

And now let´s see our team inspiration:



I'm not a wine drinker, but tried to make a card that would be good to give along with a bottle of wine as a gift. 


For my project I used the wine bottle, the wine glasses and the grapes provided by our sponsor to make a popular box card (for a long time I refused to make this card because everybody is making it, but I must said I love how it turn out with this digis. This 3d card gives a perfect sense of a real toast).

 I thought I would make a bottle shaped card, which I coloured with Promarkers, and printed again on acetate and parchment. The acetate went on top of the coloured image and the parchment lable was cut out to go on top. I added some foil to the lid. I put the words Vin Rouge and the grapes, also from our sponsor, on the lable.
 The card needed lining inside to hide the markers from the other side, so I printed the two bottles again on parchment, this time I added the two funny sentiments from our sponsor, I love the tick list, which isn't in focus here so I will take another photo when I can.

The back of the bottle, and I used the wine glass here, the glossy accents on the glass are dry now!

For my project I used a glass and I put the word Vin Rouge. As elegant color red wine evoke us romantic moments.
I've made this card, no glue used at all as it's all been printed straight on the matt photo card and coloured on the computer.. I just had to use this Bugaboo image with the sentiment, the grapes, the wine bottle and the words on the wine bottle, (very small but can be made a lot bigger!)  from our sponsors.
