Stempelgarten Challenge * Fall Colors

Welcome to a new Challenge by Stempelgarten!

Our theme of the month is Fall Colors and I love this topic a lot. I used a small and adorable stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps and Distress Inks to create my fall card. 



I started by stamping the small stamps with different Distress Inks on watercolor paper. I inked up parts of the stamp with yellow, some with orange, red or green and some with a light brown. After I did the stamping, I came in with a wet watercolor brush and started to color the leaves by activating the Distress Inks with the water on my brush. This does not require a lot of water. I used a quite small brush and made sure, I had just enough water on it to get the colors moving. 

I did not color the images carefully because I wanted to create a quite artsy look. I added some shadows to the images using my Distress Inks like regular watercolors. I simply smooshed some ink on my glass mat, mixed it with water and picked it up with my watercolor brush.

After I let everything dry, I stamped the greeting and added a stripe of washi tape underneath my panel. You could add some sequins here but I liked the card just like it is.


I hope you got inspired and we'd love to see you on the Stempelgarten Blog to join the fun.

We're also looking for a new DT member! Get all the information on the DT-Call on the Blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a colorful day,
