One Very Happy Crafter!!!!!

Sweet Pea Stamps recently held a Design Team Call.  I decided to get some more information as I am slightly (well more than slightly) addicted to Sweet Pea Stamps and put in my application.  I knew there would be so many wonderful crafters entering but I hoped I would be successful.  To my absolute DELIGHT I have been invited to join their Design Team and I am over the moon.  

To celebrate becoming a member of their Design Team I decided to create something - well it was one item but then turned into two - but can you guess what they are?
For my creations I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps digital image by Rebecca Sinz called "Forget me Not".  I have used the digital version but if you prefer an actual rubber stamp that is available as well.  She is available as a single stamp but she also comes as part of Rebecca Sinz's Sheet #14, Plate #242.  In the plate option she comes with the other gorgeous images called Bleeding Hearts, Deadly Night Shade and Sweet Pea.
I have to admit that I wasn't sure of these images and those like them with only the faces but they have grown on me and are now one of my favourites.
Now have you guessed what these creations are?  Well as you can see below they are two wine bottle covers and I got a bottle of fizzy wine out of the cupboard to show you how they look on a bottle - certainly better than popped into a carried bag to give as a present.
For this wine bottle cover I have printed the template onto some backing papers from Summertime Designs.  I have printed on both sides.  The image I have coloured in with my Promarkers.  I have embellished with various die-cut elements and finished off with a sparkly swirl, gems and a button for the middle of the flower.
For this wine bottle cover I have printed again onto papers from Summertime Designs on both sides.  The image I have coloured in with my Promarkers.  I have embellished with various die-cut elements and finished off with a a doily inked with Tim Holtz's Broken China distress ink pad, sparkly swirl, gems and a button for the middle of the flower.

Before you ask - no I didn't open the fizzy stuff?  I just used it for demonstration purposes.
