Hello crafty friend!
It’s exciting to be back after a long break! We’re celebrating the first day of Fall with new digis and lots of cardmaking inspiration. Starting today we’ll be sharing a new Digi Launch every Thursday for the next 3 or 4 weeks. We’ll also introduce our new Freebie Friday that will let you download exclusive freebies on the shop. Are you coloring and crafting with us this season?
Nothing says Autumn in the crafty world like earthy colors! I grabbed my go to watercolor palette and brought to life our new Vintage Pears Digital Stamp Set to make a 5″x 7″ card. This printable set comes with a vintage style pear branch, handdrawn by yours truly. By the way, a plain illustration just wasn’t doing it for us, so we had to go back and add engraved details by hand. Watercoloring these pears is a treat! When coloring fruit is always fun to play with different hues, highlights and shadows and even dimension.
I used mainly 4 or 5 watercolors from the palette. Starting with lime yellow and green, that I then deepened with a sienna and orange plus some touches of red… I kept some parts of the pears lighter to give them dimension and highlights. I’ll be sharing a sped up coloring video of the process soon on social media that you might want to check out. I didn’t have it in me to crop the image so I made it into a framed inset layout that allows you to see most of the colored illustration. To finish off the card, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops. 🙂
