Autumn Blessings Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Autumn Blessings Card:o)

To make this card I was inspired with a card I made in January this year (here). I love the monochrome look and how my card turned out, so I kind of recreated it (is this a CASE??). I went with same design, layout and color scheme, but went with different theme, images and made some differences. :o)

I used stamps from two beautiful brand new Jane's Doodles stamp sets: images from 'Pumpkin Spice' stamp set and a sentiment from 'Hello Fall' stamp set.


How I made this card...

stamped images randomly on a panel, for which I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. I colored images in watercolor technique using only one Distress Ink Color: Ground Espresso.

After drying, I stamped a sentiment in black on the panel and glued the panel on a Kraft top folded card base.

As a finishing touch, I highlighted all images and sentiment using white pigment ink pen. :o)

Card measurements: 95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4")
