{contest} wine label inspiration

have you ever noticed the artwork that goes into wine labels? i'm infatuated with them (so much that i frame them & hang them on my wall). i thought it would be interesting to see what you all would come up with when you use one as a basis for an inspiration board...kinda like this:

mollydooker's carnival of love still remains our favorite bottle of wine to this day...it's velvety smooth and has a lingering taste of chocolate, and great memories to boot.


photos from here: umbrella from bella umbrellas, vera wang gown, corrousel de paris from flickr, red-rustic bouquet from brides.com, and pricilla of boston maids dress.

rules for the contest:
1. choose a wine label (mollydooker and bonny doon always have great stuff if you need a jump start)
2. create an inspiration board around the label. it doesn't have to match the colors, but maybe a feeling you get from the label, or the wine itself (i recommend a tasting at home to boost the inspiration!)
3. send me the image of the wine label and a brief description why you chose it along with your inspiration board. please remember to give urls of where you found your inspiration images. send info to my email at amylynnfrank {at} gmail {dot} com.

deadline for entries is Sunday, February 1st. I will select my favorite board (not by random!) and announce the winner on Monday, february 2nd. i don't know what the prize is going to be yet...more details on that later...

good luck!

this is fun! I'm also addicted to wine labels, in fact I don't think I've ever bought a bottle of wine that I didn't like the label. It's a real problem since they say "don't judge a book by it's cover". Does the same rule apply to wine?
