CAS, fall harvest and aqua. That's what moved me to create today's card.
There's still time to join the Harvest Basket challenge at the MMCC September challenge. I've got splatters, heat embossing, watercoloring, embossing paste through a stencil and raised squares going on here. How's that for texture, dimension and technique?
I used some autumnal images from Thankful stamps from Essentials by Ellen and Striped Florals from Altenew. Don't they go together perfectly? I stamped a couple images in brown. Heat embossed a few images gold. Added some aqua Gansai Tambi messy watercolor and then punched squares.
My sentiment is incorporated into the design by using pearlescent embossing paste through STAMPlorations Hello and Co stencil onto a punched square which I then gave a wash of watercolor.
Arranged the squares in a pleasing pattern (using a t-ruler) and adhered them with foam adhesive. I'd added splatters of aqua to the cardbase prior. Cuz I was inspired by the Pin-Sights challenge over at Ellen Hutson.
I'm also joining the fun at:
