Was inspired by the "pull the rogue cork out of that wine bottle and get creative with it" sentence. I have lots of corks from wine bottles thanks to an older friend who gives me bags full every once in awhile because I once mentioned I use them in making cards. What a sweet lady. I think I will send this card to her....
Before leaving for work, I took my cork and sliced it into pieces. During the day I doodled on my sheets of how I was going to design my card. This came out nothing like my doodled image. hehe
Used my new gelli pad again. I just love it! Put on some dark burgundy paint and placed each cork round on top to give them color.
I cleaned the pad and put white acrylic paint on it and made a design which I then put my craft cs on.
Glued on my "grapes" adding some highlights and shadows. Drew the stem and leaves coloring them with acrylic paints. Added some shading and tiny doodle dots. Done.
Thanks Toni for the fun challenge. Glad I didn't have to finish off a bottle of wine before work thanks to my friend! hehe Have a great day all! TFL :0)

You are one talented, creative person! Your card is fabulous and I love your written descriptions! They always make me smile! Those corks could not have been easy to cut!
