Hi there and happy Saturday!

Today I finally put to work a stamp set that I purchased sometime in 2017.  I’m pretty sure it’s one of the very first holiday sets I ever purchased.  I love it for it’s pretty shapes, in particular the ornament at the bottom left which reminds me of Ruth Asawa’s wire sculptures which I find mesmerizing.

May This Autumn Season Bring A Bountiful Harvest…

Hi there!

Today’s card features a pretty stamp from Art Impressions, from their Windows on the World collection.  I really enjoyed using watercolors to color this 2″ x 2″ image!

I stamped the Autumn stamp in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto Arches Cold Press watercolor paper.  Then, I used a small 2 round brush and Mission Mijello Gold watercolors to color the image.  And that’s about it!  To finish up, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
