The Coming of Autumn...

Here's a fall card I made quite awhile ago, back in the days of old when men were men and fair maidens frolicked with dragons.  Or something like that.
I was supposed to be learning a new watercolor style technique, wherein you misted the paper you were going to stamp on liberally with water so when you stamped the image would take on a water colored look.  I forgot to mist the paper with water first, so this turned out to be just plain old stamping.

I colored the image with a variety of markers which I think looks mildly odd.  I'll bet it would look much better with the slightly smudged and blended water color look.  I still like this card though as I'm partial to autumn and its colors.

The Fine Print: Leaf stamp by Hero Arts and I forgot to check to see who made the greeting.  Whoever it is has several very nice nature-themed greetings.  Maybe one of these days I'll remember to try this technique again, the correct way!

Such a pretty stamp, it would be a shame to smudge it! Hugs xx
