Hey Crafty People, it’s Tasha again and I’m here with another Make-A-Card post.
Autumn is my absolute FAVOURITE time of year and I really love making All Things Fall themed cards.
Creating a rainbow wash background…
I tapped each ink pad gently onto my glass mat, to give me some ink that I could use for painting; if you have the re-inkers, you could squeeze a couple of drops out instead.
I wanted a sort of Rainbow, so I added each colour in turn onto an a2 panel of Watercolour cardstock, ensuring that I overlapped each colour to give me a gradual transition.
To aid with this blending, I had wet my panel with clean, clear water, before bringing any ink to it. Then you’ve just got to work quickly to ensure that none of the colours has chance to dry before you can blend it into the next.
Once my watercolour wash was complete, I allowed the panel to dry thoroughly before moving on to the next step!
All Things Fall…
The new Harvest Rainbow is a large stamp set, and it has loads of really small, individual leaves & acorns.
I grabbed a mixture of them and added them to an acrylic block; I made two groupings of the images, on either side of the block so I could easily stamp them.
I wanted a tone on tone sort of look, so I stamped the images over the background, roughly keeping each ink colour in its own colour section.
To be 100% sure it was dry, I gave the panel a quick blast of my Dual Speed heat gun, so that it was ready to be embossed.
I added the sentiment from the Harvest Rainbow stamp set, in the centre of the panel. Then, using the same embossing powder, I also embossed the edges of the panel; I love how this turned out!!! (More details on embossing on my own blog.)
Don’t forget to check out the fun Reel I’ve got over on IG showing how I made them!
As always I am so grateful for you spending this time with me!
I’ll be back next week for more inspiration!
