Serendipity Stamps Challenge #28 -- Aged to Perfection!!

Good Wednesday morning and Happy Hump Day to you!!
This month the Serendipity challenge is to use typeprint/sheet music. So, we want to see your cards using typeprint or sheet music and at least one Serendipity image. The DT this week had an "extra" challenge to use a food image!

I adore this image and have been wanting to ink it up for some time. Today was the day. Isn't it lovely!! Serendipity Stamps Wine and Cheese Cling Set. I splurged after Christmas and bought the full set of TH Distress Markers. I am still trying to "understand" how they work... I have only colored with copics before and the distress marker nibs are stiff and didn't blend as easily.... not sure if it is how the markers are made or me needing more practice (well, I'm sure I need more practice) The background was created using a border from this set and tone on tone stamping.

Added "Wink of Stella" to the wine glasses... well, actually a little bit all over.

This pic shows the "wink of stella" I added to the wine!! Fun little touch!!

Hope you find time to join us, and...
