Today we welcome Shannon as our hostess for November at CAS Colours & Sketches. She has given us some beautiful fall colors to work with so I just had to create another autumn card even though I need to start on my Christmas cards!
Here are the colors:
Celebrate Sunflowers is a bundle that is fast becoming a favorite. I was first attracted to it by the dies (they are gorgeous!) but the images are wonderful as well. This is the smaller of the images and works perfectly for a CAS card.
Using my Stamapratus I stamped the image on Whisper White Thick cardstock in Saddle Brown Stazon ink and did not remove the stamp. I then "watercolored" the image using the ink colors and a blender pen. Although the Stazon does not bleed or blend with water it did loose it's color a bit with the other inks on top. So I reloaded my image in the Stamapratus and stamped it again. This gave me the rich, vibrant brown I was looking for.
I stamped my sentiment on the card base, used a stitched square to cut out the flower and popped it up using foam dimensionals with just a bit of linen thread underneath. A super easy card that would be perfect to send to friends this Thanksgiving!
