Men are Like a Fine Wine Card

So... with hesitation I'm posting this card that I made. It doesn't have any wow factor to it but it's a good card. Here it goes. The patterned papers are by Die Cuts with a View {2 totally different stacks}. 

The grapes chipboard is by Paper Accents. I painted the base layer with white distress paint and then I mixed the paint with distress ink and water to get the purple color. I took a paint brush and used the mixture to watercolor these circles where I thought the grapes would be. I experimented with different distress inks and the amount of water verses the amount of paint and came up with 4 color different purple colors. I did a bunch {pun intended} of these grapes with the intention of using them someday and I thought they were perfect for this Deep Red Stamps sentiment stamp which you can find at 

The wine bottle and cork are stickers by EK Success. The wine bottle is added with dimensional adhesive except for on the top because it lays on the chipboard. I stamped the sentiment with Hero Arts black ink.
