Thinking Of You-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello and welcome to another Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! We are at the end of August and rapidly approaching Autumn so, we thought it would appropriate to create an Autumn scene on our card collaboration this month. To create my card I started with a piece of Canson cold press watercolor paper and stamped the images from Altenew's Birch Land stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink because it's water proof. Using my Tim Holtz distress inks I stamped the leaves around the birch tree, the basket, and in various spots along the ground using both direct ink to paper stamping and ink pad with a spritz of water. Using a fine water color brush I added some details to the bird house, the basket, and the birch tree. I die cut the watercolored panel using a Gina Marie stitched edge rectangle die and then matted the panel onto some rust cardstock I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I matted the entire focal panel onto my A2 white card base and that completes my card. I love how this turned out.
For my coffee choice this month I opted for a nice iced cinnamon latte from one of the food trucks at my local farmers market downtown. I chose to walk the 2 miles down there and it was muggy so, this was a much needed icy treat!
Thank you for visiting my blog. Now, be sure to hop on over to Deb's blog and see what fun Autumn scene she's created for us this month!
