It's cool & damp around here, so a card sending warm greetings seems appropriate. The beautiful Fall mood board for the Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights challenge provided my inspiration. I focused on the on the colors in the apple picture & smooshed a panel of watercolor paper with Distress Inks fired brick & spiced marmalade. Since I learned to do 1 color at a time & dry between each layer, I love how this technique turns out. This time I also tried using less water for some layers which gives even more texture. I didn't want to add any other colors, so die cut EH Bold Blossoms leaves & blossoms from the panel.
Before adhering them to the ivory card with Perfect Paper Adhesive which dries invisible, I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the greeting in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I was a lucky winner recently & the beautiful Sending Peonies stamp set from The Ton was part of the prize Virginia sent to me. There is a lovely variety of sentiments you can stamp with the word Sending & using the MISTI makes it so easy. I lightly splattered with the Vintage Sepia & added a few PPP gold sequins. I'm also entering CCCB, CropStop, Fusion (sketch) & Word Art Wednesday. I know everyone is super busy, so your visit is especially appreciated.
