Serendipity Stamps - Buttons & Chalkboard

The Chalkboard Technique and Buttons are the Serendipity's Design Team Challenge this time!  All you have to do to enter the Blog Challenge is to use Buttons this month. You have till February 3 to enter.

When I decided to use this stamp for the Chalkboard technique it made me think of a chalkboard outside a specialty WINE shop.  What do you think?  I wanted to use Distress Aged Mahogany Ink for my grapes but my pad was all dried up!  So, I had to use Fired Brick.  Not quite the color I wanted (to match Burgundy wine) but it will have to do!

 Inside I stamped the grapes again on both layers.
Finished size is 4 1/2 x 5 1/4.

Serendipity's special is Free Shipping on all continental US orders $10 and up from today through January 22!
