Today I have another card to share using Burlap - for the August Mixed Media Challenge: Summer - Optional Element Burlap.
For this card design - I just used threads that I pulled from a square of burlap - like beach grass - tied them together and adhered the 'sheaf' to a die cut window.
I used some wonderful embossing powder I just got - Frantage Shabby Blue - on the window - it has little specks of color and metal along with the white base - that gives it a rough textured look and feel and it's really sparkly IRL!
For my background panel - I first sponged it all over with Salty Ocean Distress Ink - flicked water over it and dried it with my heat tool. Then I embossed the sand castle stamping with Ranger Tan embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment from Gina K Designs directly onto the panel, layered the window onto the panel with foam dots - and adhered the burlap 'sheaf' to the frame with Glossy Accents
The design of my card is a loose interpretation of this week's Freshly Made Sketches - turned on it's side.
My colors were inspired by the Color Q challenge
