Today I am going to be sharing card samples used with some gorgeous new autumn sets from Concord and 9th.
The minute I saw this artichoke, I knew it HAD to be watercolored.
It looks good enough to eat 😍
I have actually never eaten an artichoke so I don’t know if I would even want to eat one or like them. My husband didn’t even know what an artichoke was when I asked him. Yeah. We were both homeschooled. #thanksmom
I used the woven plaid stamp to add more interest to the background.
For this next card, I decided to use my Gina K Obsidian Amalgam Ink instead of painting no-line with my Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I created a background by stamping the artichokes a bunch of times and then watercoloring it the same way I did the no-line one.
I also made another watercolored background with the Autumn Harvest Bundle and popped a Simon Says Stamp Die on the bottom.
I just love those autumn colors 😍 I pretty much love everything that has to do with fall. Sweaters, leaves, the colors, scarves, late night bonfires, warm cuddles in bundles of blankets, and most of all because bugs have officially returned to wherever the heck they came from. I love everything EXCEPT the cold. And the idea that winter and snow is coming soon. That’s enough to make anyone depressed.
I then whipped out only two colored pencils and created a very simple background for this next card. I used a brown pencil for the darkest parts and shadows, and an ivory pencil for the highlights.
For this last card, I blended various colored Distress Oxide Inks on two pieces of Gina K Heavy Base Weight White Cardstock and cut the leaves out with the Dies included in the bundle. I splashed some White Gouache on them for added detail.
And that’s a wrap for this Friday! I hope ya’ll enjoyed everything. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to post them in the comments.
See you next week!
