A Fall Spirit

If you're here to see my guest appearance at the City Crafter Challenge Blog this week, scroll down or click here.

I am the guest designer this week at the City Crafter Challenge blog for their challenge Fall Has Arrived.  For this challenge you can create a project or pick an element from the photo inspiration.

I made several cards in anticipation of hosting the challenge and will post them this week and encourage you to participate in this fun challenge.  This card was made using the following techniques which are similar to the one in the challenge entry.  Here's the details:

  • The background was made by sprinkling Brilliant Red, Orange and Yellow Brushos watercolor crystals onto Strathmore watercolor paper.  I then used a spray bottle to mist water over the paper.  It created these splashes of color.  I did leave the paper flat and used a heat tool to dry so I didn't (purposefully) get too much watercolor effect.  This technique leaves wonderful bursts of color that are perfect for this card.
  • I die cut the leaves with my Momenta Cut 'N Emboss Leaf die from some glitter paper.  They create beautiful focal points on the card.  
  • The sentiment came from a Raisin Boat Thankful stamp set.  I stamped in brown Archival Ink and hand cut the flag, edging in Distress Inks.  
It was so fun to prepare to be the guest designer.  I can't say thank you often or loud enough to the ladies over at City Crafter Challenge blog.  I decided to link this card up to a few other challenges:
