Watercolored Fall Leaves

A Jillian Vance Design

Hello everyone.. I do not know about you, but I am dreaming of Fall already…

Today’s projects are Fall Themed Cards. I created the watercolor backgrounds using Catherine Pooler’s Ink Pads (Tutti Frutti, Tiki Torch, and Tiara). On these cards, I used both positive and negative die cuts.

It is super easy to create these watercolored backgrounds. First, add the ink on craft mat. One color at a time. Next, spray it with some water. And then smoosh in the watercolor paper. Gently press the watercolor paper so the ink get soak well. To create the layers of color, you need to dry every time after you add the color.

I repeat these steps for several times until I am happy with the layered of colors. And next, to create the distress-look, spray and sprinkle some water on it, wait for couple seconds, and then dab off the water with paper towel.

I used the Leaves & Petals Die Set and for sentiments are from the Autumn Blessings Stamp Set. Both die set and stamp set are from A Jillian Vance Design.

For more details, I am sharing steps how to crate these watercolored cards at A Jillian Vance Design blog. I hope you all can visit me there today.

Thank you so much for stopping by… Have wonderful day!
