Shimmery Gathered Wheat

Hey all! Look at me - two days in a row! Unexpected time at home equals some time to play! And it is far too hot outside to be doing much. We had a nice rain last night, but the weekend sounds brutal!

This is my first play with a new set, coming in the July-December Mini Catalog called Gathered Wheat. I'm a Kansas girl through and through and Wheat is right up there with Sunflowers for me. Especially since it is harvest time and we are missing it again.

Very quick and simple Thinking of You card. Vanilla background stamped with the Wheat bundle image in Crushed Curry. I tried several things (on other images) to color the rope, and nothing looked good. They all just got muddy and lost the detail. And this doesn't show well in the scan, but I grabbed my Stella pen and went over the tops of the wheat, and the rope. Totally accents all and makes them pop. Before that it was rather blended, but this looks great. And in person is a nice, subtle accent. Saying in Soft Suede finishes the card. Accent layer of Soft Suede, and Crushed Curry card base.

This is a great set, perfect for masculine cards. There is also a set of coordinating dies. I can't link below as they aren't yet available, but here are the numbers/costs.
