Happy Friday and welcome!
I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a card that is focused on dies and was inspired by the beautiful moad boad made for the CDD September Monthly Social Media Challenge! The current theme is autumn and it couldn’t be any perfect for this time of the year! Look at those gorgeous autumn colors and amazing images!
Of course, I had to play more with the fantastic dies from CDD September release. Those beautiful stitched trees come with Fall Border Dies set.
The idea was to create an autumn scene with a circle focal point and add a bit of dimension for some inserest. This project is super easy to recreate and doesn’t require mad coloring skills at all. My choice were Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since I just love their bold vibrabt colors, but you can use any watercolor media you have on hand or even you Distress or dye inks. My win win combo with Zig markers is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. I made a simple splotchy non perfect watercoloring and while the dies were drying I started working on the card base. I scored in half 11″ by 4¼″ piece of a red card stock and cut out an additional slithtly smaller white panel where I die cut a circle using Stitched In Circle Dies.
Finally assembling the card I adhered the watercolored trees directly to the card base using a foam tape and then popped on top the circle piece where I previously stamped a sentiment from Harvest Happiness stamp set. Of course, couldn’t skip a few matching sequins from Maple Leaves Sequins set.
