Give Thanks

Hello everyone, happy Saturday.
I used a watercolour card base, stencilled and splatted background, the solid leaf stamp was inked with distress markers and misted with water, the leaf veins and sentiment stamped with distress ink. Was quite pleased how it turned out.

CAS Watercolour, ATCAS and Happy Little Stampers

Greetings, fellow crafters. 

To make my card, I used watercolour tube paints to create a background which (hopefully) gives the impression of trees in Autumn, added a die cut frame and a leaf which was stamped, water coloured and fussy cut.

I'm joining in at Loll and Bonnie's fabulous new challenge, CAS Watercolour, where the theme is Autumn, and there is a design team call. Fingers crossed!!

Hi everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying our Indian summer. No autumn leaves here yet!

I sponged ink through a stencil to create a background, and sponged inks onto the die-cut leaves.

CASology, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Time Out

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good weekend.

It was the first day of Autumn two days ago here in the UK, our leaves are still green but I wanted to make something with an "autumnal feel".

The stitched leaf die-cuts were inked using Cut N Dry Foam with distress inks, I added a stitched circle die cut from vellum and a SSS die-cut sentiment, with some ink splattering in the background.

Thanks for looking!
