giving Harvest Thanks.......

I think  people know that during the daytime I work for an English Vineyard - yes we do make wine - good wine - and red too,  in England!  We win lots of awards... International - we've even beaten the French!  That being said, we've just finished [well, almost] the most amazing harvest we've ever had - bringing in and processing over 100 tonnes of grapes - that folks, is a heck of a lot of wine!  Anyways, I had this hankering to make something using a rather lovely church window stamp from The Artistic Stamper together with one of their fabby texture mat stamps - and just for good measure, being Harvest 'Time'.... one of the clocks and foliage stamps too...... feathers from birds on the estate... crown cap [bottle top] from the bottling line for the sparkling wine... All inked up with Brilliance Tiramisu ink and Archival Coffee ink - thus my tribute to Harvest time!  The picture doesn't do the article any justice, but maybe I am a little biased!  Think maybe i'll have another go with different inks........ any suggestions??  Cannot hope to replicate the fantastic colours that the vines are turning into..... I'll post some pictures later!  Enjoy your Harvest time. xx
