In between colouring for the challenge I also needed two small cards, one for a bottle of rosé and the other for a bouquet of flowers. Instead of two small cards I decided to make two tags.
I have a Marianne Design Die that makes a bottle tag, it cuts an opening on the top so you can hang it on a bottle. In the same set there is also a die for the wine glass I used.
I die cut the tag out of white paper and with some painters tape I masked some areas to make with some stripes my Distress Inks for some interest.
The glass is cut out of a piece of acetate. I coloured a little piece of white cardstock with a pink pencil.
I put this little piece of cardstock in my Xyron sticker maker with the wrong side up, so the glue went onto the coloured side. I then adhered this behind my glass, (after finishing my tag and hanging it onto my bottle I noticed that the rosé colour was a little too pink but I didn’t have time to change it).
To decorate the tag I die cut and dry embossed a grape vine and the grapes twice, from 1 die cut I only used the bunch of grapes. This one I cut out of purple cardstock and the first one out of light green.
With my coloured pencils I add some shadow and highlights to the grapes.
The grape vine I coloured with some shades of green and a brown.
After colouring I glued the grapes on top of the grape vine and adhered them with some foam tape onto the tag.
Then I adhered the glass on to the tag with a small piece of foam tape only behind the rosé.
With sticker letters I made the word Proost, that is Dutch for Cheers and so I finished the tag for him.

For her I wanted a tag with the colours of the bouquet of flowers, the flowers were yellow and in the bouquet there where branches with berries in red/yellow. I used a piece of white cardstock to die cut the tag and then I taped it together with a Joy Crafts stencil on to my craft mat.
With a small ink brush and three colours of Distress Ink I made the pattern on my tag.
I put that aside to dry and in the meantime I die cut flowers from yellow, light yellow and a light green.
I die cut and dry embossed six of the great petals, three of the smaller one and three times the heart of the flower.
While the petals where still in the die, after embossing, I used a finger sponge dauber and the Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to colour the petal veins. When they were all dry I glued them only in the middle together, this way I can curl the edges slightly up. I adhered them on to my tag.
I die cut the word Gefeliciteerd, Dutch for Congratulations, and adhered that above the flowers on the tag.
With a red and yellow waxed cord I finished her tag.
