All Bottled Up!

The theme for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Wendy Vecchi Style". I've always loved Wendy's "All Bottled Up" stamp, so decided I would make a feature of it in my project.

I started by stamping the background lines in Fired Brick distress ink, and then swiped over them with Wild Honey and Antique Linen distress stains.  I applied Faded Jeans distress stain to my non-stick mat and spritzed it with water, then moved the background card in it, giving areas of dark and light blue colour.

The bottles were stamped separately and cut out, then swiped with Distress Stain to "fill" them and to colour the lids.  The "ART" stamp was applied with Walnut Stain distress ink and the bottles were fixed in place.  I tore a strip of white card and stamped the text with Black Archival ink and used my handy "fingerprint stamps" in Fired Brick Distress Ink.  The white strip was fixed in place and I created a mat which I edge with Fired Brick Distress Stain.  Finally the whole thing was applied to my 5x5 card.  I had a lot of fun making this, I hope you like it :)

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
