Wine Tag

I wanted to do a little more for the hostess gift other than just a plain bottle of wine.  I decided to make a tag for the bottle.  These are a set of clear stamps from Fiskar's called Aged to Perfection.  I purchased mine at a local craft store. 

I took a basic manila tag and inked it up with Distress inks.  I also stamped the images directly on the manila tag and then stamped them again on white cardstock.  I colored in both sets of images and pop dotted the ones on white cardstock.  It's hard to tell from this angle that all three images are raised.  I used Copics to color everything in and add touches of a Spica purple glitter pen on the grapes to make them sparkle more.  The reason I decided to color in the images that were stamped on the tag itself was because the pop dots I like to use are fairly tall and I wanted there to be color if you looked at it from the side.  Though, I must admit, I didn't do any shading on these, just color blocked them.

Here is a picture of the tag on the bottle.  The hostess much appreciated this extra touch and it was easy to do.  I think I'll make up a bunch to have on hand when I need them (so I'm not making the final touches just before walking out the door next time).

What a wonderful idea! I may copy your idea and make a few ahead of time too.
