Is it starting to feel like autumn where you are? We’re still having warm, summery days for the most part but there’s definitely an autumnal edge to the air, especially in the mornings. That inspired me to make this simple autumnal card, which was very quick to create, taking me just under 10 minutes.
I started by tacking the Marching Leaves stencil from Catherine Pooler onto my Neenah Solar White 110lb card base with some washi tape. I then used a large blending brush to blend Limoncello ink over the stencil, starting in one corner and fading out to white towards the opposite corner. Once I was happy with the colouration I switched to Tutti Frutti ink and repeated the process, though I did not go as far across the card with the second colour. I think my blending brush may still have had some black on it which muted the colours a bit, but the resulting colour works well for an autumnal design.
Having completed the ink blending I removed the stencil and placed the card into my MISTI. I lined up the Hello stamp from Altenew’s Super Script stamp set in the unblended corner of the card and stamped with Twilight ink. I then finished off the card with a trio of Limoncello Nuvo Drops.
As mentioned above this card was really quick to make. The stenciling was probably the most time consuming part but even that only took a few minutes. The colours could easily be switched up to change the seasonal feel on this design – fresh greens would be perfect for spring!
