The challenge for the CCEE Stampers this week was to be inspired by a song. I did not have a song in mind as I perused some old stamps. When I came across the set with these grapes, I immedicately thought of Marvin Gaye's song "I Heard It Though the Grapevine'. If you are not familiar with this oldie, click on this YouTube link to hear the song.
I used this old retired SU stamp along with a sentiment from (I think) Flourishes. I again pulled out my crackle backgrounder, and did lots of sponging with a wild honey distress ink. In real life the vertical panel, which is embossed, matches better than it appears in this photo. I also stamped a lacy border to the left of the purple vertical panel. I added a ribbon/bow and some paper piercing as well.
Be sure to go to the CCEE Stampers Blog to see the cards inspired by music. You will also find details on how you can p lay along with us.
