{Technique Tuesday} October 2018 Release Countdown: Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Technique Tuesday's October 2018 Release Countdown! The design team is featuring a variety of release products and you're sure to love them so be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday blog for the full reveal and links to all of the amazing projects. All of the product links will go live on October 1, 2018 for your shopping pleasure.

Today, I'm showcasing the beautiful Luscious Grapes stamp set. I heat embossed the grapes with sparkle embossing powder on a full A2 panel and watercoloured it with distress inks (all colours are linked below).

I used the Luscious Grapes Dies to partially die cut just the top of the image, then cut across horizontally to the edge of the panel on both sides, removing the top third of the panel.

I used two sheets of patterned paper from a retired Crate Paper 6x6 paper pad called Notes and Things. I especially love the faux ombre cork strip, perfect for representing the wine that comes from grapes, especially with the birthday sentiment! The angled stripes are a nice contrast to the cork pattern.

To finish, I embellished the card with iridescent bubbles.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow for Release Day!
