Poppystamps: Fall Thanks

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Poppystamps blog today, sharing a card inspired by the cooler fall weather we've been having in my neck of the woods.
I started this card by spritzing Gold Color Shine, through the Garden Falling Maple stencil, onto a piece of watercolor paper.  I then splattered a fall array of watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, over everything; trimmed its bottom edge with a punched, Kraft, cardstock, grass strip; anchored the prepped piece, to a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches; and popped it off the White, cardstock, card face with foam tape.  The Trim Tree was then cut from Kraft cardstock; adhered in the center of the card face; and filled in with lots of watercolored, on watercolor paper, and die-cut leaves, which I coated with Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer and shine.  I also perched a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut and watercolored bird in the tree's branches.
A stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut and watercolored fox sweetly smiles below its leaves...
and a die-cut, from gold cardstock, "thanks" sentiment completes the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a terrific Tuesday, friends!
