Inspiration Station Challenge #5

First Monday of the Month and here we are again at Inspiration Station Challenge, with a new inspiration picture for you.   I have to admit that this one had me scratching my head for a while, until I loosened up that is.  Here is the inspiration picture

So gets your creativity going with this?  Is it those yummy vibrant colours? the potted plants maybe or the wood (Table).   The first thing that stayed with me was Blue in fact for a while all I could recall of this picture was blue!  Then I looked again.

As is so often the way with me I went looking through lots of older stamps.  But first the background with is Mown Grass and Salty Ocean spritzed on a craft mat and the card stock smooched in it.  Next the two flourish stamps they are both from La Blanche and are donkeys years old, but one of them had never been inked before!  Why not? no idea.   

Next the main image a glass of wine my idea of dining out!  The stamp is wood mounted red rubber from Inkadinkado also donkeys years old.  Another older toy the die used to cut the topper out.  Edge dusted with more Mown Grass DI, whisper pens tinted the grapes and the glass in one or two places.

Please do check out what my fellow teamies have created we are all inspired so differently by these images.   Let us see what you come up with as well, that is after all what we are about!
