Here are the Stampin' Up! colors:
So this is definitely one of my favorite stamp sets from the new Annual Catalog! It's called Tuscan Vineyard! Now I am a lover of wines & wine tasting. We have traveled to Napa Valley, France & the Rhine Valley in Germany. But never to Tuscany in Italy. That's so high up on my bucket list!!! For now though, I'll have to live it through this stamp set! lol Now I know the inspiration photo is not a vineyard, so don't worry!!! lol
This stamp set lends perfectly for watercoloring. It's so soft. So I pulled out my Aquapainters! I know I'll be experimenting with this one quiet a bit! Of course the Wink of Stella on the grapes make them look like they have dew on them!
Now the embossing is with the new amazing Seaside folder. I thought the lines looked a bit like the rolling hills in a vineyard!!!
The sentiment is from Mixed Drinks! Another fun stamp set!!! That one will be a great set for cards for my crazy friends!!! lol Or just for myself! It IS summer FINALLY after all!
So met go hop around & enjoy!!! IT'S SUMMER!!
