Hello everyone. It’s Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook sharing a little fall watercolor with you using one of the layers from the new Autumn Breeze cover plates.
To start things off I pulled out a piece of watercolor paper and chose some Tombow waterbrush markers to watercolor with. I scribbled them on my glass mat, grabbed a cup of water and a paintbrush and started painting all over my panel.
Once it was dry, I die cut it with Autumn Breeze layer B. Then I die cut the same layer from white cardstock 4 more times, keeping track of which leaves go in which spots.
Then I moved on to my background panel. I took some brown Tombow markers and another piece of watercolor paper and did some ink smooshing. Drying in between each layer, I did it about 3 times to get my background how I wanted it.
I sorted the leaves onto the die cut and glued each layer together with the watercolor layer on top. I adhered the watercolor panel to the brown panel and then added the dimensional leaves to their spots. I laid a heavy acrylic block on top while they dried and moved on to my sentiment.
I chose a sentiment and some leaves from the new Pumpkin Lacework stamp set, stamped and heat embossed them in gold. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
After I cut these out, I realized that I wanted more so I went back to stamp and heat emboss another round. Then I glued them together and then glued them to the front of my card.
I finished off the design with some iridescent bubbles from my stash and voila, it’s complete. I think this is so beautiful and the coverplate is so versatile to be able to use it as is or even take the leaves and use them on their own too.
Fall is my favorite season and it makes my heart happy to create fall themed cards as soon as I can.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day.
