Watercolour Autumn


Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by today!

Winter has been dragging on for some time here in Calgary, and while we are all gearing up towards spring and using spring colours, autumn is my favourite season.

I find the colours of fall so beautiful and I wanted to recreate that beauty in this card.

This card is for the Lawnscaping Challenge #122: Watercoloring.




I used various colours of distress ink to "smoosh" a background on 140lb watercolour paper, then stamped the log with Lawn Fawn's Walnut ink and the greeting with Black Licorice. 

I stamped this fox (which was the very first stamp I ever saw from Lawn Fawn and fell in love instantly) with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured him with copics. 

The card base is made from craft cardstock and stamped randomly with the open leaves in the same orange ink.
