White with one - Raspberry Wine

Isn't it another interesting colour over at the White with One challenge site!

raspberry wine

At first I didn't think I had anything in my stash that was exactly THIS colour...but I did find a Memories Mist and went with it!!
This is my entry in the May challenge...



I found an embossed sheet of white cardstock (well its probably more paper than card, quite thin) - tore a wide strip of Prima 'Discover' from the Delight collection - used the ledger half and then fussy cut the bike, sewing machine and corner bow...and a little banner! I wet the whole sheet with water and flicked a little Memories Mist 'red' and watched it bleed out...so cool! While it was drying, I gathered a bunch of chipboard pieces ( mostly randoms but the 'beautiful' is a Scrap FX Wordlet!) I proceeded to splatter the chipboard with assorted Stampin' Up! re-inkers, and Dylusion 'White Linen' when it went a little TOO dark...there is a couple of layers! I used the Prima Tag 'rubbish' and just turned it over to use as a base piece. Adhered the title and chipboard pieces before twirling the ribbon (how good is that colour match?) added some pearl bead centres (for a little glam) then covered the photo and splattered some darker drips - done! There is some Stampendous Fragments 'Burgundy' in there, but I bet you can't see them?

Katrina, Kerry and Julie are some of my favourite friends...we became friends through our husbands working together about 15 years ago - and still catch up when we can...even though life has taken each of us on different paths!
