Thank You- Watercolor Wash with Fall Leaves
Hi Again Friends!
I wanted to share a card that I created using the TGIF Challenge! #29 Sketch along with the Fab Friday 77 Color Challenge.
I love this fabulous fall color combination so I decided to use the leaves from the retired French Foliage stamp set to create a fall "Thank You" card :-)
I hope you will have the time to stop by both of the above sites to check out the inspiration from their fabulous Design Teams as well as their gallery entries!
To create this card:
Using Stāz-On® Jet Black, stamp the leaves from the retired French Foliage stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the leaves using Stampin’ Write Markers- Hello Honey, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss.
Lightly spritz the leaves with water and once dry, fussy-cut the leaves.
Using Sponge Daubers, apply Hello Honey and Cajun Craze Classic Ink to the Watercolor Wash background stamp, spritz with water and lightly lift a bit of the color with a paper towel before stamping the image onto Whisper White cardstock.
Trim off approx. 1 ½” of the background panel, ink the honeycomb stamp from the Butterfly Basics set with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp onto the trimmed piece of the background panel and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Trim the remaining background panel, stamp the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Sunday Sentiments and large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.
Add the trimmed background panel onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock, add the vertical honeycomb strip and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.
Add the fussy-cut leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals® along with the 3/8” Stitched Blackberry Bliss Satin Ribbon bow to finish off the card.
