Artistic Grapes


I'm so excited that today is my first *official* post on Couture Cardstock's blog!  My assignment was to work with the monochromatic family A Rose by Any Other Name, which was a perfect fit for me since pink is one of my favorite colors!

The rich colors of tuber and coppelia inspired me to stamp this image from Hero Arts' Artistic Grapes.  I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black on detail blending paper cut and embossed with a nestabilities label 10 die, and colored the grapes with a combination of Copic markers and a white Prisma color pencil for highlights.  A vertical strip of Applejack was edged with a MS edge punch and some strips of gorgeous two-toned satin ribbon.  All of the papers were distressed and sponged with Tim Holtz tea-dye ink.  I finished with a bow easy two-loop bow, and a few sparkling jewels.
