Not sure why I chose the Neat and Tangled Patchwork Stencil for this challenge,I always forget to use them. A couple of weeks ago when I was commenting on Simon says Stamp Wednesday  Distressing Challenge I saw this card by Trisha and she used her rectangle blending pad to make a grid.

With that it my mind I fixed the stencil on paper and made a rough grid like pattern with the Distress Oxides  but I did used the circular blending tool to give a more random lookThen I ran it through my Big Shot to emboss it. Next time I will stamp the sentiment before embossing, I was extremely lucky that the Simon says Stamp Time for Wine words stamped so beautifully.

Using the same Simon says Stamp stamp set I stamped the wine bottle and a couple of glasses, coloured with some copics and added a touch of white using a Uni-ball White Pen. Nearly forgot I used the matching die to cut out my wine bottle and glasses.

Time to be honest here this isn't my first card but I had totally forgotten the challenge was food and drink and I had used the Simon says Stamp Look for the Miracles mainly because the matching dies had arrived in my craftroom. And since they were on my desk I used the stamps for my hearts and flowers, added the dots with the white pen.

Finally I used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to give my card mat a finished look. The only reason I stuck it at jaunty angle on the main card was I had a headache building up and I couldn't get it straight my sister would be so pleased with me since I'm a straight line girl.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
