GC84: Color Challenge - Snow, Pine & Mahogany

Snow, pine and mahogany are three lovely colors that go well together, so I couldn't resist making a card for this challenge at Gingersnap Creations.  I made the background by spraying forest color wash onto watercolor paper and then giving it a tint of gold sparkle with glimmer mist.  The pear stamp (Qwik Art) was then stamped with embossing ink and embossed with white powder.  I then cut out the shape with a nestability dye.  The card base is Papertrey Ink's Scarlet Jewel cardstock and the ribbon is their matching ribbon.  I matted a piece of Prima designer paper onto that, and then attached my focal piece.

I love the idea of the painted/glimmer misted background and embossed stamped image. Thanks for taking the Gingersnap Creations challenge. Helene
