Wine Country In California

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:00 PM

    When I was told the challenge for Speedy Fox and Friends was to represent your state I was pretty excited. I'm a California girl and there is so much that can be presented here. I decided to go with wine country since I'm surrounded by it and I love wine.
     I used the set called No Sour Grapes by Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. I love this adorable set  and this stamp in particular  I colored the stamp in using Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. I then used glossy accents over the bottle and glass to make it look like actual glass. I love how it turned out and cant wait to send this card out to my other friend who adores wine.
    What reminds you of your state? Join us this week with a card that represents it and you could win an awesome stamp set!!
