This week we are continuing with our song titles as inspiration theme, and have a challenge set by my teamie Helen.... shes a huge Liverpool supporter.... so chose a song to match her favourite teams colours..... RED RED WINE, by UB40...... which means we want to see lots of RED on your tags this week.
I used a CRAFTY SECRETS stamp set that has been unused in my craftroom for.... well it must be 2 years at least..... i keep meaning to alter a wine box for my Dad, but it never gets done. I stamped onto some DP....( moulin rouge) coloured my images with colour soft pencils..... and inked all the edges in 3 shades of red. I then stamped another 4 bottles, 3 glasses and quite a few grapes/leaves.

These i coloured with pencils , then fussy cut... and used foam pads to add depth to my tags.

I then used red and grey ink on a course sponge and gently dabbed over the 3D images to blend them in.

I finished off by using slightly larger red tags to mount my image tags on and fine red ribbon.

I know i'm greedy but i couldnt decide which to show... so i'm showing both!

I hope you can find time to play along.... you dont have to do red wine.... just RED..... but whats better than a little red wine.....?

Please dont answer that!

I shall also enter these tags in the following challenges,

 USE AT LEAST 3 THINGS FROM THE LIST..... my things are a little green, nature inspired, dimention and a sentiment.

Thanks for visiting me... love lynx
