…the perpetual adhibition of artificial heat

Sharing a QCAS card featuring the wine glass stamp from Tim Holtz’s Wine Blueprint set.

For this card I used the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch for the layout.  It teamed perfectly with the off the edge stamping challenge at Back to Basics, which I did by simply cutting my circle die cut off to give me the straight edge I needed for the layout and removed some of stamped image.

I wasn’t sure how to add in the long rectangular element in the sketch but over at CAS on Friday they’re looking for some stencilling on your project so thought that would be perfect.  I used one of Tim’s stencils with some embossing ink and then added in his Aged Mahogany Distress Embossing Powder.  This tied nicely in with the wine colouring (also Aged Mahogany but with a touch of Seedless Preserves).  A matching chippie sentiment from Make it Crafty, a mat in some appropriately wine-coloured cardstock and my card was complete.
