Wine Anyone?

I really enjoyed colouring this image and think the wine looks like wine if you know what I mean. I used a colour combination I haven't used before R59, R89, R39 and a touch of R37, this was suggested by Kelly and it really works, all the colours are pretty similar and blended a lot easier than I expected them too. I covered the bottle and glass with glossy accents to give them a real shine.

The papers have all been given the distressed look with gathered twigs as when I tried to mat them it looked too much and I also wanted it to look a bit like a cork board.

I have used early expresso cardstock again, beginning to wonder how I ever managed without it and it sits on my desk permanently.
