Autumn Watercolour


Today I am busy preparing for a Stamp Camp on Friday night and I thought I would share one of the projects I designed! (I think this one is my favourite!)

I used the new Autumn Harvest stamp set from the mini catalgoue and this is my first stamp set from SU that is a die cut set. This means ...... no trimming!! Woohoo! It was awesome to just pop them out, put them on the wood blocks and go to town! I really hope they keep this up and make EVERYTHING in the catalogue die cut!

Anyway, I decided to teach watercolouring on this card, so I stamped the small pumpkin on a piece of watercolour paper and then masked it and stamped the large one over top. I used my black Stazon ink of course, so that the image wouldn't run when I used the ink and water to paint it. Then I used my Aquapainter with SU inks and painted it using Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and So Saffron. I put that aside to dry while I stamped the leaves and acorns on the OO paper and did my sentiment on the middle strip and attached it to the card base which is Sahara Sand. I matted the main piece on Chocolate Chip and used my slot punch, punched two times end to end to create a slot wide enough for that delicious Chocolate Chip satin ribbon!!! A very elegant Thanksgiving card!! Hey, what do you think of the sketch??? Maybe I'll use it for a future sketch challenge!!

Don't forget to enter this week's Kimmie's Challenge!! It's a fantastic colour combo challenge and you have several days left to enter!!

I love how you did the ribbon. That satin ribbon is so gorgeous. Great watercoloring. I read your blog faithfully, but have a difficult time leaving comments because for some reason the page keeps "refreshing" every 2 seconds. So, just to let you know...I love your work and I would have commented more if I could. (I found a way around it...I submit the comment section when it is blank...and then it stops refreshing.)
