Mark’s Finest Papers - http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/

 
This card was made with the new set “Thankful for You”. The card size is 5.25 X 5.25.


I inked the wheat image with coloured markers in various shades of soft browns and yellows and then stamped onto Linen white paper. The bg paper is deep brown linen. The sentiment is stamped with Palette Burnt Umber.
I then added some gold glitter to the wheat image.
The main panel is then popped up onto deep brown paper.
The rest is self explanatory and the finishing touch for this card are the gorgeous gems.

All supplies except the gems are from Mark’s Finest Papers.

  21. The bling is beautiful and random, like it just landed there. I really like that...I tend to "overplace" things so they don't look natural. You, however, gave it a natural look.
