Hello Autumn

Hello Autumn

Good morning!

Today I'm sharing a more seasonal project than my last one – yep, no Christmas cards today, but a nod to the changing of the seasons.

I started out by cutting The Greetery's Garden Tub and Garden Tub Filler dies from watercolour paper, so I could colour the foliage in with watered down Distress Inks and use ink daubers to colour the tub with Distress Oxides and add some ageing with by spritzing water.

I also used some of the blooms from the BotaniCuts Wildflower Mix set to decorate the foliage with some late summer/early autumn florals. I added some details with white and black pen, and also white Nuvo drops to some of the flower centres.

As you can see, the tub and foliage fill up most of the front of an A2 card, so I simply cut the large Crimped Frame from watercolour cardstock and created a wash with Distress Inks in subtle autumnal shades for the background.

Finally, I used the Curio Labels stamps to add a sentiment to the tub and the "hello autumn" up in the corner of the card. The Curio Labels set is so handy, and of course it coordinates with the Curio Divider and Details die set. But the stamps will fit on any sentiment strips.

Until next time, happy crafting!
