Watercolour Pencil Colouring feat. Apple Harvest Stamp Set


Hello my friends!  Welcome and thanks for popping in!  

As part of the June Challenge over in the World Card Making Group, we have been asked to create a project using our favourite technique.   Boy it was hard to choose, but I decided to go with colouring as I find this very relaxing believe it or not. 

My image comes from the Apple Harvest Stamp Set.  I need to confess, I've had this set a while but have never inked it up so today's the day.

The image was stamped in Saddle Brown StazOn Ink on a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (smoother side).  For the colouring, I wanted to only use the Watercolour Pencils and chose Real Red and Cherry Cobbler for the apples, Granny Apple Green, Garden Green and Old Olive for the leaves and Early Espresso and Cajun Craze for the branches. Basic Gray was added to the background.  The colouring was left as is.  

The finished image was die-cut using the second to largest scalloped rectangle from Scalloped Contours Dies with some Linen Thread tied around the bottom section.  The sentiment comes from In The Moment Stamp Set and was stamped in Early Espresso and attached using the Foam Adhesive Strips.

A piece of Basic White cardstock was layered with a smaller piece of Designer Paper from the Fresh As A Daisy.  This was glued to a card base in Garden Green cardstock.

A second piece of Basic White cardstock was glued to the inside to enable a message to be written clearly.

To finish of the card, add a few embellishments if desired.
