Hope you're doing well! This is always such a whirlwind time in America with one holiday nipping at the heels of another, both in terms of card-making and outside of card-making. Wait. What? There's such a place?
Right now we are a few days away from Halloween, but I don't have a Halloween card to share this year. I made one with several ghosts on the front of it and then it disappeared.
So here is a fall/Thanksgiving card I made, because you know, Thanksgiving gets about two days of Interweb time before we kick into Christmas designs. Which you'll find starts just below this card!
This terrific pumpkin image is a NBUS stamp from the Altenew stamp and die set called "Autumn Bounty." It was such fun to color with my Ziggies and Hammy had tremendous fun schplattering with a bit of diluted white Tempura. The background is pp and a strip of copper paper provides a grounding shelf. The blessings die-cut sediment from Hero Arts was cut from the same copper paper.

At our last crafty Zoom get-together our technique was Metallic Watercolouring on Black with Betsy Veldman. I used Stonehenge black watercolor paper and became somewhat addicted to the process! I love the way it heat-embosses. I painted with a tiny pack of Pearl Ex paints I've had for twenty years and it paints beautifully on the Stonehenge. It was hard to capture the sheen from the painted areas. (It goes without saying that someone was in schplattery heaven with these cards!)
