Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Watercolor Wednesday: For All Things

Good morning!  It's officially fall and the weather is falling right in line with the calendar and the temps are falling.  Today over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog it's Watercolor Wednesday and the designers are sharing some great cards using watercoloring.  I will admit, while I love the look of watercoloring I don't use the beautiful technique all that often but one of the great things with the recent catalog releases is that there have been stamp sets available that can give you the look of watercoloring quick and easy, in this case I used the For all Things stamp set.

I started with Crumb Cake for the cardbase and then added a piece of Hello Honey behind the stamped Very Vanilla background piece.  For the background piece I used the leaf from the For all Things stamp set and used Hello Honey, Cajun Craze, and Mello Moss ink and I stamped off first before stamping each of the leaves for a softer effect.  Next I stamped a couple of feathers from the Four Feathers stamp set, cut them out with the coordinating Feathers Framelits and Big Shot and sponged around the edges of the feathers.  I also cut out a feather using the Champagne Shimmer Paper (everyone needs some bling!)  After attaching the feathers to the card I used some Gold Baker's Twine to tie a nice and simple bow.
The greeting is also from the For all Things stamp set, I stamped the banner piece in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and then the greeting is in Cajun Craze.  I hand cut out the greeting with Paper Snips and attached it to the card with dimensionals.

This card is perfect for the fall season that we're entering and makes me want to snuggle under a blanket and relax in front of the fireplace, ahh heaven!  Make sure to check out the other cards the designers are sharing, they're wonderful
