Wheat Harvest


Here is my submission for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I used my new Autumn Days set and the Tapestry technique found here. My embossing powder is a deep etch clear powder, so it shows up very shiny on the paper.

I used Pumpkin Pie and Creamy Caramel Craft Ink from SU for the background and stamped the wheat in Whisper White before embossing the whole background piece. The wheat for the main image was stamped in Creamy Caramel and sponged with Creamy Caramel Craft Ink. The entire work is framed with Soft Suede and mounted on a Creamy Caramel card base.
