We had a brief reprieve from the heat & now it's back to the 90s. I know Fall will be here before we know it, though, & decided to use a fall theme & colors for my entry in the MFT sketch challenge. I wanted to make some more Nightshift Blue felt rolled roses & thought they'd be pretty with kraft & gold. I used the MFT Peek-a-Boo Chevrons die to make a stencil. I added gold embossing powder to the paste & heat embossed. To make a sort of faux embossed panel, the kraft die cut leaves from MFT Thankful Leaves were stamped with Versamark, glued to a kraft panel & trimmed even with the panel edges. I used my waterbrush with Distress Stain Tarnished Brass to do the splotches. Finally tried the "messy thread" look with some gold floss--not sure about it. Both the chevron & leaf panels are mounted with foam tape.
Gold pearls embellish the roses & now I have a Thanksgiving card done! I'm adding this to the City Crafter Challenge Blog where the theme is roses. Hope you've enjoyed the weekend. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
