I LOVE the fall. As a recent transplant from a semi-tropical climate, I am extremely excited for the changing of the seasons that happens in Colorado. August is truly lovely here since the nights get cooler and the days feel a bit shorter. The sun no longer beats down on us and scorches the grass, so my yard has never looked better. And did I mention, I have an apple tree! It has grown beautiful apples that taste good right off of the branch. I do feel lucky to live here! (Please remind me I said that in November when I have to shovel snow and the people in Houston are rolling into their temperate time!)
But I digress! I was inspired by the changing leaves and decided to make a watercolor smoosh card. I really enjoy a fun, not too messy, method that has big returns on the wow factor.
So here it is:
Tada!! I have to say, I love this card. It really is impressive in person, as the leaves shine with clear wink of stella and the colors just work.
I can’t wait to send this one out to a friend. I just know she will love it when she gets it in the mail.
I’m getting ready for my first card class this weekend, so I need to skidaddle, but I’ll bring you the directions tomorrow.
Enjoy and happy stamping!
