Hi again. I have a simple card for you today. I was inspired by several challenges to use Autumn and Fall colours, and a clean and simple design, as well as using water-colours.
I started by using three of my Brushos to create a background on water-colour card. First I sprayed the card with water, then dropped on the orange, brown, and gamboge colours from Brusho. I moved the card around a little to create a mix of the colours, then let the piece dry a little, but then became impatient so took my heat gun to it!
I then die cut two leaves from an X-Cut set I have had for absolutely ages, and then embossed that with a Crafters Companion embossing folder with a leaf print on it.
The embossed piece was stuck down onto the Brusho card, then cut down to slightly smaller than the base card, and adhered with double sided tape.
The sentiment is from the Altenew Pattern Play Circles – yes, still on my craft table for further playing – and stamped directly onto the card base, using Versafine black onyx. (Brave of me, don’t you think?) I didn’t want a large sentiment, as I didn’t want any of the embossing or colour detail to be lost.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
CAS Watercolour Card Challenge – Fall Leaves
Time Out Challenges – photo inspiration (used orange and white)
Inspired By All The Little Things – photo inspiration (used orange and white)
Double D Challenges – use leaves on your project
