Here is another card project to catch you up on in my crafting space.
I love fall /thanksgiving cards, but I never seem to have time to get them out on time.
For these cards I used the rubbernecker fall foliage stamp I got from the Katscrappiness.com haul. I learned about Rubberneckerstamps in 2015 when I stopped by their booth at a Scrapbook Expo in my area. (I love my poppy set!)
I thought this would be an awesome thanksgiving card.
The rubbernecker stamps really do all the work for you re: watercoloring. It is great when you are short on time.
For these cards I used Momento Dew Drop inks in Bamboo Leaves, Rhubarb Stalk and Tangelo. I spritzed some water on the "leaves" portion of the stamp, the water does all the work for you mixing the colors. I used my mini-misti to make sure I got even pressure and the leaves all in the same spot. The tree was stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black. The sentiment was from Hero Arts sentiments stamp set. I tried to mirror the text in a similar/predominant leave color to match.
I used Strathmore pre-cut watercolor sheets 5x7. I split these into two at 3.5 inches and it fit perfectly on my Neenah Soloar White card base (80lb). I wanted to add some splatter details, but due to time (late night crafting) I kept it clean and simple for these cards.
I hope you liked my projects!
Thanks for stamping by!
