Alrighty! Let's talk about the projects I'm sharing. The Artisan Design Team was asked to create projects targeting specific season. The season I am featuring is FALL. Harvest time and falling leaves are some of the imagery that comes to mind when I think of the Fall.
This 'Falling Leaves' card features the leaves image from the stamp set as well as the leaf die from the Stitched Season dies. I've also used the large stitched label shape shown behind the leaves.
The stamped leaves are colored with the Cajun Craze, Flirty Flamingo and Crushed Curry watercolor pencils directly onto watercolor paper. The colors are blended and lightened by adding water from an Aqua Painter. Flirty Flamingo might not seem an obvious color choice for fall but I found the way this color blends with Cajun Craze made these maple leaves pop! Love it.
This 'Harvest Thank You' card features the wheat image from the stamp set. This image is colored using the Crushed Curry and Granny Apple Green watercolor pencils. The background behind the wheat is also created using the watercolor pencils. Simply color a shape (I used Coastal Cabana on my project) and blend with water. The examples shown below use Crushed Curry and Granny Apple Green watercolor pencils.
Both of my cards today also feature the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impression embossing folder. I love how the look/feel of wood adds a bit of texture to these cards. This is folder is a GO TO staple in my crafting.
