Give Thanks

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing an autumn card featuring products from the new 2015 Holiday Collection. Autumn colors are my favorite, so I thought that a great way to achieve them was by using ink dauber colors for the background of my card.

Creating backgrounds with ink daubers is very easy, and the results are always fabulous. First, I simply applied ink dauber colors over a craft sheet, and I sprayed a little bit of water. I blended the colors with my fingers, and after that, I placed a watercolor paper, pressing down with my hands. I let it dry and then, I splattered more color with a thin brush.

Once my background was completely dry, I gold-embossed the sentiment and pumpkin image from the CL882 Autumn clear set. I matted the panel with Sunshine Mixed Layering Paper and I adhered the panel onto a PS627 Kraft Layering Paper (10) card base. At the very end, I embellished the card with some gemstones. Quite easy and fun!

Thanks for joining me!
