In the midst of that chaos I managed to make my Thanksgiving cards and a birthday card for a dear friend. My Thanksgiving card had to be simple because of time constraints, as in 'last minute'. I have seen this technique using glossy paper in several places, but always with clear or white embossing as a resist. To emphasize the fall colors I used a Claret embossing powder from Rub a Dub Dub and am very happy with the way it came out.
My friend with the November birthday is a wine lover so I knew I had to use this 'wine shop' stamp set from Purple Onion. I colored the wine barrel with Peerless water colors and made a tag with one of the sayings from the set. The Old Olive paper from Stampin' Up along with the black paper from my scrap bin made the card and layers. I embossed a copper shimmer paper with musical notes because I thought it went well with the rustic image. I only wish, looking at it now, I had distressed the paper a little.
Thanks for stopping by.
