Hello everyone… We are almost in the middle of August. Lots of Fall/Autumn theme stuff are out already. Can’t you believe that? So…let’s enjoy the rest of the Summer no matter what!
Today I have couple of Fall/Autumn themed cards that I created using a fun techniques called Watercolor Block Stamping and Inlaid Diecutting. I tried the stamping with block before and love the texture and effect on the results. But on these cards, I tried the technique from Jennifer McGuire that I watched on YouTube.
I added the Distress Inks directly on the stamping block and spray with some water. Then stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper.
On the video she also showed how to get extra splatter by tapping the block while the watercolor paint still wet. I did that and love the distressed/splatter look on the edges of the rectangle. I also added some splatters on the panel.
When the panel was dry, I run it through my die cutting machine to cut out the leaves using A Jillian Vance Designs – Grand Leaf Trio Die Set. And I also cut out the panels with Rectangles Die Set.
I stamped the sentiment from A Jillian Vance Design – Be Leaf In Yourself stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and Mini MISTI.
To put the card together, I added them on the card with some adhesive runner. For the leaves, I used the inlaid diecutting technique using 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
Here’s another one I made with the same technique.
May these cards inspire you to jump into Fall/Autumn themed projects. And… I also sharing these cards at A Jillian Vance Designs blog today, hope you all can visit me there 🙂
