Today I have two cards using the new Bushel of Blessings set from Sweet N Sassy. This set is absolutely beautiful! I have been coloring all of the images up but for my cards today, I thought it would be fun to test the versatility of this one using the wheel barrow of pumpkins and flowers.
The first card uses Bristol smooth paper. I inked the image with Archival Ink Coffee color. Then I “water colored” the image with Distress Ink frayed burlap color for the sepia tones. I dried and inked in layers for shading but always with the same color. I used a simple sentiment from Sentimental Wordfetti.
The second card uses ALL the color the first one didn’t use. I used Canson XL watercolor paper and Distress Inks. I blended some blues on the top 3/4’s of the paper and then spritzed it for texture. I used the leaves from Falling Leaves and randomly inked them in reds, oranges, yellows, and moss green to ink the bottom of the page. I repeated the leaves to cover the ground and lightly spritzed it too. I colored the image with Copics, fussy cut it, and put it on top of the leaves. The sentiments is from the Bushel of Blessings set.
This was super fun. I love them both and couldn’t choose one if I had too! What about you? Color or No Color?
I hope you were inspired!
Thanks for stopping by!
