Dreaming of a White Christmas

But I’ll drink the red if the white runs out!

This stamp set, Half Full, has lots of great sayings for gifts that you can easily make for your friends. These plaques are perfect to give to the wine lover in your life. I found the plaques at a local craft store and knew they’d be a perfect size to recover. I also changed out the store’s ribbon to one of mine so it would match better.To make the plaques, I traced an outline of the wood plaque onto our card stock and then cut it out. I did my stamping before I glued it to the wood plaque just in case I made a boo-boo. The wine glasses in the background are stamped in Versamark ink. They help fill up the background without being overwhelming visually. The wine bottle and glass are watercolored using our ink pads and an aqua painter. This is a quick and easy way to watercolor an image and it’s a great technique to practice your watercoloring skills.These plaques are a couple of the items that I had for sale at the Little Barn Boutique yesterday. I have a couple left over so if you want to purchase one before they are sold out, just let me know.
