More autumn


I love how the cooler weather and crisp nights of autumn affect my card making these days! This week's Wednesday Stamper challenge is to incorporate patterns into your work. The focal background was created on glossy cardstock with Ecoline watercolour inks, mixed with off-white acrylic paint, using the "smoosh" technique. When that was dry, I stamped over it with a Judikins background stamp, using Staz-On black ink. The "in-between" background that has a metallic copper border was created by spraying one of the same Ecoline watercolour inks on
watercolour paper...a very different look. Then I added
a simple tag with a Hero Arts sentiment. These
wonderful Ecoline inks are available
in Canada at Quietfire Design.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
