Hi there!

Here I am again, catching up with posts.  It’s it amazing how quickly the days fly by?!  I was inspired to use this background stamp by all the posts about snow that I was seeing on Instagram.  I grew up with snow but don’t have it where I live now.  I miss it!

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.

Thanks for visiting!
