Wine Tags

Earlier I posted about how much I am loving the Cool Tools challenges at Moxie Fab. I have really enjoyed the 'around the house' challenge, where we need to use everyday items in our card making.

While working on my sunshine card I was sipping on my glass of red wine. Do you know where this is going?? The perfect color dye to use on some gift tags! I grabbed watercolor paper scraps and just dipped them right into my glass.


Isn't that ribbon a perfect match? The lovely Bethan sent them to me from her fun give away :)


This tag was dipped into my wine glass and I let the wine run through the paper as it wished. All stamps on this one are from an old Fiskars set called Terrific Tags. The black ink soaked into the wine and got a little 'blurry' but I really like the look it made.


The splatters on this tag were made by dipping my little paintbrush into my wine glass and just flicking the wine on the paper. I wanted to keep the splatters and not cover them up, so this hollow 'thanks' stamp from Paper Smooches Chit Chat set was perfect. I double stamped it, first in a purple wine color and then on top with black.

There are always so many good things that wine can do :)
