Thinking of Fall--kraft, gold & blue


MFTWSC189

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.

  6. Beautiful card, Greta. It has seemed like fall here a good part of the summer so I guess I'm ready for it. I love the leaves, they look like they are embossed on your card. The gold messy thread sets is off perfectly.
