A Good Wine.

I have just recently been away on a 3 Day Craft Retreat organised by Oyster Crafts. One of the days workshops was by Honey Doo Crafts, The classes were run by Amanda and her mum Kay and we made 3 items during the course of the day.  I'm showing you here one of the cards that we made.
A Pop Up Step card.

The stamp and matching die cut is by Honey Doo called 'A bottle of Vine'. The die cuts were already done for us but we needed to stamp them with Versafine Onyx black ink and then with clear embossing powder. This gave a lovely deep shine . We used  Honey Doo Mica powders  mixed with water to paint the fruit and leaves which dry almost immediately. I chose the sentiment from a selection we were given to use.

This gave us time to do the cutting for the step card arrangement.  You can see  a side view of the card below. 

 It's The Doc's birthday today so this is the card I gave him. No doubt a real bottle will be consumed
later today.
