Shopping our Stash #204 - Red, Red Wine


This week at Shopping our Stash we have a super fun challenge - and another song earworm as a title! Use wine as the theme of your project, or create a red project. I seriously overthought the process and finally came up with this at the last second:


Supplies: rose from Stampin' Up; leaf from Paper Smooches; Palette Noir ink; Festive Berries distress ink; water brush & watercolour paper; classic small circle Nesties; Corner Chomper; allll the red bling

I'm impressed with how vivid the red watercolouring turned out - I am so very in love with watercolouring with my distress inks. I need more wc paper! 

Want to see how the team interpreted the challenge? Check out the SOS crew: 


And you have until Monday,June 6th to come play!
xoxo,
Jessi

Fun water coloring. I happen to love my Distress inks, too. Trying not to branch out too much ...

Glad someone else had trouble with such an easy challenge. Over thinking is my nemisis too. Awesome job with your finished project.

I was expecting you to go with the wine theme on your card — you drank it instead? Regardless, this one's a beauty!
