Hello crafty friends! I don't know how we are already at the end of August, but I'm happy it is because I'm so over these hot temperatures! LOL! Today I'm sharing a card I made, while thinking of cooler weather to come, with Rubbernecker Stamps beautiful Splatter Leaves set. I did some loose watercolors for this card and have the details below!
First I stamped my leaves from the Splatter Leaves set onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versamark, added gold embossing powder, and then heat set them. While I had the supplies out, I went ahead and stamped the sentiment from the set and heat embossed it too.
Then I used some Artist Watercolors in some warm colors to color the leaves. (The set I used is linked below. I used Red Cosmos, Fiery Sunset, Fall Harvest and Tropical Green watercolors.) First I used a brush and water to dampen the paper and then dropped in my colors and let them alone to blend. I let them dry and then added another layer of color. While that was drying I took another piece of Bristol and added random water puddles and dropped in the same colors.
When the strip of color was dry, I trimmed it to 2" x 4-¼" and adhered it to a gold card stock layer measuring 2-¼" x 4-¼". I glued this to white cardstock that I die cut with the Diamond Pierced Cover die. I added this to an A2 card base.
Then I used the coordinating Splatter Leaves dies to cut out the leaves. I arranged them and then adhered a few with foam tape and the others with glue.
Next I die cut the sentiment with the third smallest Nested Oval Small Stitch die. I popped it up onto the card with foam tape. I embellished the card with a twine bow (attached with a small Glue Dot) and a few gem stickers.
I love the gold embossing with the Autumn colors! This was really fun to make and I hope you've enjoyed it. Thank you so much for stopping by!
