Hello there! Today I have a card to share that was made with Freshly Made Sketches #158. I had the chance to play with the Stampin' Up! Holiday Home set again. So many ideas I have for this set, and so many cute cards already made with it on Pinterest! For this card, I wanted to experiment with stamping the little bunch of leaves in watercolor.
I scribbled onto a palette with markers in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. Then, I spritzed it with water, and stamped in the little pools and then onto the card. I stamped the leaves on the trees, around them on the ground, and also across the background of the card base. I really like this effect. I also drew a horizon line with the Mossy Meadow marker.
The house and pumpkin were colored with Stampin' Write Markers, and the windows were colored in with a cream colored pencil. Some patterned paper, crochet trim, a wooden leaf and Linen Thread complete the card.
I actually added a greeting to the inside of the card, and even got an envelope with a liner ready to match as well. I decided it would be good to have the insides and envelopes made ahead of time so it's easy to send them out and make someone's day.
Here is the sketch I started with for this project.
Well, that is all for today, but I'll have more projects to share later this week. Thanks for stopping by!
