Challenge #76
A Favourite Song

This fortnights challenge A Favourite Song has been chosen by DT sister Hazel. I love listening to the radio and enjoy 'tunes' but do I ever pay much attention to the title of the song or who sings it - not in the least, it is just there in the background of my life.  So although I love music and hum along to catchy tunes that is as far as it goes lol.  Can you now imagine the problems this challenge caused me, hours of research to see if I recognised any titles and lyrics.  Thankfully I came across Red Red Wine by UB40 - I seemed to recall that one after I heard so to me that means it must have been a favourite at one moment in time. If you have not heard it you can listen to it here.

I have used the digital image JJWine by Bugaboo.  The image was masked and Distress Inks were used to create the background and backing paper then a stencil applied and a second colour of ink was applied.  Next I coloured the image with Copics and made the sentiment label.  Both these layers were matted with burgundy and green papers and placed on the card. To finish off I added green half pearls and a cream bow which I coloured with Copics to match the colour theme, some 3D gel to her glasses and glass of wine, stamped a pattern on the bottle label and add gold bits here and there.

Challenges entered : -

  2. The background looks pretty with this fun image. Love how you did the bottle label! Thanks for joining our challenge at Catch the Bug.

  3. Cute card and so appropriate to the song lyrics. I'm not a wine drinker or any alcohol at all, but I can imagine, this is true. Maggie, DT Teamie
