Wine Labels

The super talented and very generous Jacqueline  has been dishing out some of the wine labels her son acquired.  ( See her post here) I was lucky to get some in my mail this past week.  They are stunningly beautiful on their own but to see what Jacqueline has produced is wonderful, as well as the many friends she sent them to.   Today I should be working on a presentation for a job interview I am doing tomorrow.... but the call of the labels, my stamps and ink was too much....

Over at City Crafter Challenge blog this week, it's all about Neutrals.  I knew that I wanted to use a label with this challenge.

Neutral roses


I used a soft cream base, made my own pp by stamping the Hero Arts Etched Flower in Tea Dye distress over some cream copy paper.  I then added the flowers to the label and Old French writing as well.  I then made my rose with Spellbinders Rose creation dies. Spritzed the rose with Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Love the result I got.  I added some cream lace.  Used pop dots to add some dimension on the label which was matted with the cream card.

I'm now off to get something organised for tomorrow.  I am very nervous... the job is in Design.  All about thinking outside the square.  Not sure if it will be my thing... then on Thursday, I'm interviewing for the Design Lead position... I hedged my bets and applied for both positions, quite surprised to get an interview for both!  And there's another job doing what I used to, advertised this week.   I will apply there too...

Hope you weekend is going well... and your week does too.  Think of me.  Your thoughts will be appreciated.

I just adore this card, Dawn! Beautiful & elegant! I'm getting nervous about using my labels, though--not sure I can come up with anything this good! Good luck with the interview. I just applied for a part time job you do from home--would be great, but doubt my writing sample was exactly what they wanted.
