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.
