Beautifully Aged

Here's a sneak peek from Squigglefly's new releases this weekend!!!
I just love the variety of image styles Squigglefly carries! Something for Everyone!!


This grape & wine image by SF artist Lynne Stransbery was colored with Prisma pencils and blended with those paper stumpy things again. NO OMS! The simple blend of the colored pencils gives a richer look...I think! lol...but than I really don't know that much! The paper was a RAK, perfect for this image. I used faux stitching and gold ink to smudge the layer edges. Crystal Effects was used over the wine glass and to highlight the edge of the bottle!

This will make a lovely birthday card for an older lady...Beautifully Aged!

Hope you're having a lovely day! Be Blessed!!!

Really stunning Maria. That paper couldn't be better for this image, and you have just colored this fantastically. I really like the smudged gold around the edges.

This is beautiful Maria. The image is perfect for my husband because he makes wine. I'll have to go over to squigglefly. And you're right - that paper is perfect with this and you've matched the tones so marvelously. Hugs.

Positively beautiful. The paper could not be a better match for the stamped image and you did a wonderful job with the coloring/shading. It's right out of Tuscany and makes me want a plate of cheese, some grapes and some really good wine.

Great card, Maria. I have that same dp and lots of grape/wine stamps - they go perfectly together! Love the Crystal Effects on the glass and bottle - great idea!
