I love this time of year
with all the wonderful colors and scents and freshness to the season!
It's all still VERY green here as it will be all year
but a girl can dream!
My card is for Splitcoaststampers Watercolor Wednesday
and we're up to the 17 in the series!
This week's theme is watercolor imprints
and this is easy to do with a stencil.
For my card's background,
I've used the randomness stencil from Picket Fence Studios.
I started with Canson #140 watercolor paper and my Kuretake Gansai pans.
The flora is die cut papers using Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps
and I added a sentiment from one of my My Favorite Things stamp sets.
After watercoloring the stencil, I set it onto the watercolor paper
and put a book on top to press the color into the paper.
After about 30 minutes or so, I let it dry naturally the rest of the way
and then put the card together pretty easily!
For the final touch, I used some gold watercolor paint and
used my paintbrush to splatter bright pops of gold color onto the background.
And that's it from me!
Thanks for stopping by :)
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
