The Paper Players #317

Hi there!

We have a fun new CAS challenge at The paper players this week!


                                                                   

The season with the most beautiful color palette is here, and we want you to show us those colors using leaves in your CAS design!

My card to inspire you to play along looks like this:


watercolored Autumn leaves

A closer look at the detail...

... and a last one ;)

watercolored Autumn leaves

This really was a pleasant experiment with distress inks and Altenew stamps!

I combined 2 sets :

  • Brush Art floral to create the striped background.
  • Golden Garden for the leaves.
Colors used :
  • Peeled paint.
  • Spiced marmalade.
  • Mustard seed.
  • Vintage photo for the leaves.
I used one of the smaller brush stroke stamps in the different colors, and softened the look by adding a small amount of water with a fine paintbrush.

After it dried, I stamped the leaves and also added very little water to achieve the water colored effect.
I layered the created background over leaves stamped and water colored directly onto the card base.

The sparkly gold peeping from behind the BG is glittered washi tape from 3M.

To finish off I stamped the sentiment and added touches of gold liquid pearls.

I am adding my link to the following challenges:
