Autumn Branches Thank You Card
Hello and welcome! Seeka here and today I'm sharing a card featuring the new Autumn Branches Cover Plate and some easy watercoloring.
I started off by using the cover plate to cut a piece of watercolor paper. Next, I used some yellow, olive, and brown watercolor brush markers to quickly and loosely color the leaves and branches, spreading the color with a small wet paint brush.
While the branches were drying, I used painters tape to tape a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of watercolor paper down onto my work surface, masking off just a thin border around the edges. I scribbled a light yellow watercolor marker at the top of the panel and an orange marker at the bottom and then used a flat paint brush and clean clear water to spread and blend the colors over the panel.
When the background panel was dry I stamped the sentiment, from the Color Layering Chipmunk stamp set in Onyx pigment ink. To get the placement right, I positioned the branches panel over the background, off-setting it a bit to the left to leave room for the sentiment. Once the sentiment was dry, I adhered the branches panel, still off-set, and trimmed off the overhanging edge at the left side of the panel.
Next, I created a frame to hide the borders of the off-set panel by cutting a piece of Dove White cardstock with the largest die from the Wood Frames Infinity Dies set. I used foam tape to adhere the frame over the card front and then, to finish, I adhered the card front to a card base.
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!
