Hi crafty friends! I usually love to add lots and lots of dimension to my cards, but for this one I focused on the coloring and created this fun one layer fall card using images from Streamside Studios.
For this card I printed out this large image from the Fairy House Builder digital stamp set by Streamside Studios onto Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm cardstock and once more onto copy paper. I cut out all the images from the copy paper to use as mask. To adhere them to my cardpanel I used some temporary adhesive and then got to inkblending!
I used my favorite blend of inks from Pinkfresh Studio to create this fall sunset look. I go from blue to a really pale orange for this blend and then I put a torn piece of masking tape near the bottom of the card to create the grass. Then I can peel off my masks. If you have any adhesive that doesn’t pull up with your masks, use an adhesive eraser to take care of that before you start coloring!
I did all my coloring with alcohol markers today. I stuck to a fairly limited color pallette using mostly deep warm jewel tones to go with the fall look. Deep red, deep green and turquoise, some cream and brown. When coloring I always work from dark to light and work in several layers to get a smooth and nice blend. If you’d like to see the full process for this card, please watch the video!
