Thank you for joining us for the Color Fusers October 2022 color challenge blog hop where I am sharing a card made with the Hello Harvest Bundle and watercolor technique.
This month’s color challenge is a great fall combination, and worked perfectly to color the gorgeous bouquet stamp from the Hello Harvest stamp set. I love the light orange pumpkin to help set it off against the Bermuda Bay plaid paper.
Hello Harvest Bundle
I kept the embellishing to a minimum to allow the flowers to shine! A bow made with the Simply Elegant Trim, and a thin strip of Gold Foil was all it needed.
The images were really easy to color in using a simple watercolor technique. To do this, I turned my ink pad upside down and squeezed it, so ink got on the lid. Then, I opened the pad, and pulled ink off the lid with a Water Painter. You can add as much or as little shading as you would like. It’s fast and looks great! I hope you try it.
To create this card:
- use a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Bermuda Bay card base scored at 5 1/2″
- cut a 3 3/4″ x 5″ Bermuda Bay layer
- Bermuda Bay Designer Series Paper cut to 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″
- trim down a 1/4″ scrap of Gold Foil to 2 1/4″
Stamp the pumpkin and floral spray in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. Color as desired, then die cut with the Rustic Pumpkin dies. Layer the designer paper onto the Bermuda Bay layer, then add to card front with dimensionals. Add pumpkin and floral spray with dimensionals. Stamp sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock in Early Espresso ink. Layer foil strip behind sentiment, and add to card front with dimensionals. Add a gold trim bow. Stamp inside card as desired with Early Expresso ink.
