Keep Calm and...

It's Friday, which means that it's time for me to post my card for the Outlawz Alcohol Marker Group! Our sponsor this month is Make It Crafty, so be sure to join April's challenges for a chance to win a prize from them. Even better, they've offered up an extra prize for an additional draw for those who use a MIC image.  Such a great prize so make sure you get those alcohol markers out and get colouring!

This week's challenge at the Outlawz Alcohol Marker Group is "Keep Calm". Now I have a bunch of images that I could have used that would have reinforced the theme, but I went with something a bit different.

Here it is!

The Wine Bottle and Glass stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie's Wine Me, Dine Me set was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I debated adding my personal wine label, Grapes of Kath, but resisted temptation as the image was already colored to my liking.

Believe it or not, I had "Keep Calm and Carry On " Washi tape, so that set my color palette. I found a wonderful gradient grey and white patterned paper in the Elegant 6x6 pad by Authentique that worked really well with the Washi tape and the colored image panel.

"Keep Calm", the matted image panel, and "and" were adhered the patterned paper. I grabbed a very, very, very old pack of alphabet rub-ons by Making Memories (company defunct) and used that for the "Drink Wine" part of the sentiment. "Good" was from the Christmas Remnants rub-ons by Idea-ology.

I matted the layers, added ribbon, tied on a grapes charm, and called it done!

Thanks for visiting today!
