thanks card



I went back and watched Season 4 of Project Runway and have been having lots of "make it work" moments, so of course it made sense to play along with the Runway Inspired challenge.  Love the look of the Hero Arts background embossed with white on vellum.  I bought a new type of embossing powder last week and it has issues if you over heat it, so not sure what I think of the spots where you can see the blank ink (maybe I should've used embossing ink?).   In addition to the background stamp I used some May Arts black velvet ribbon and their new burlap cotton blend ribbon, a piece of gold foil and the PTI thanks die cut.  For the background I combined splatters from my watercolor brush with some metallic mist from Tattered Angels.  It's a beautiful day here in California, check out my morning photo on my walk this morning.  And now I'm off to the County Fair!
