Thoughts of Autumn

This is absolutely my favorite time of year. I love the smell of wood burning fireplaces and I adore anything pumpkin spice flavored! I am constantly on the hunt for the "perfect" pumpkin spice flavored coffee.

The card below is a sample for a monthly workshop I hold in my home in Springfield, MO. All products Stampin' Up!

Using the Pumpkin Pie watercolor pencil, I scribbled on a piece of watercolor paper measuring 2.25 x 2.25. Then I dabbed it with a wet baby wipe. This is a bit of a take off of my #foolproofwatercolor technique I came up with. Click here to see the original technique video. You are basically softening the watercolor pencil scribbles with the wet baby wipe. After that, I inked up the detailed leaf image with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink and I stamped it off once on a scrap of paper, before stamping the image on top of the watercolor paper. I did this three times.  I cut the base leaf from Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the detailed leaf from Early Espresso cardstock. The ribbon is in the new holiday catalog.
