Red, Red Wine

I'm very partial to a glass or two of red wine, so I was pleased to see that the latest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is Red, Red Wine. After a good rummage through my stash, I came up with half a sheet of "wine-stain"  backing paper printed out from the Katy Sue designs CD "The Wine Buffs", a wine related topper from a Kanban sheet that came in a great value pack of male-themed toppers from Foil Play and a sheet of stamps from the cover of a past issue of Creative Stamping magazine.

Putting them all together resulted in this:

and then I thought that despite not being very CAS images, the stamps would lend themselves to being used in a CAS style, so came up with this:

I think the second one works a lot better. And it also fits the current challenge at CAS-ology, which is Vintage .
