Autumn Blessings my friends! Hope you are enjoying cooler weather, and all
the blessings that come with the season.
Speaking of Autumn Blessing, we're starting a new challenge at the Card Concept
that just happens to be titled, Autumn Blessings. Here's the photo
Rich colors, textured contrasts, and full of inspiration!
Julie Gearinger picks our photos, and she's been hitting it out of the park!
I zoned in on that silver aluminum pail, and all the layers of flora in the
Style? Mixed media; watercolor, embossing and stencil paste, and lots of layers too!
I used a couple of sets from the Greetery, (supplies at end of post), and used the pitcher
You barely see it, but on the left of the card is a pewter pitcher, that was a gift to my
mom from her great aunt in Boston. We used that pitcher every Thanksgiving, and
it graced our table during the holidays. I loved it so much, my mom gave it to me,
and it continues bringing beauty to my table on special occasions.
The pitcher is filled with watercolored autumn leaves, and I brushed on embossing
ink along the edges before adding gold embossing powder. Just couldn't be
happier with this inspiration photo. There's so much to be inspired by, and I
can't wait to see what you all create!
Have a wonderful creative, crafty week!
