Wrapped Wheat

A different type of project today. I found this idea on Pinterest from the Inspired By Charm blog where Michael shows this very simple project wrapping wheat bundles with embroidery floss for a colourful decoration. Since I was decorating my living room for fall, it was a perfect addition!

This month over at casmixup.blogspot.ca the challenge is watercolour washes. CAS cards are a struggle for me so I am always inspired by the card makers that can embrace the white space. I did a watercolour wash with Distress inks using wet on wet technique. Added a partial stamp of Tim Holtz’s cityscape and made a night scene with the lights in the building and a sunset reflecting in the water.  The Congratulations stamp is one by rubbernecker stamps. In order to meet the challenge I did watercolour wash, stamping and my choice which is a shaped scene. I will link this up there
