Happy Friday crafty friends! Kimberly here to share with you how I made this quick and easy card using the Jess Francisco/Maker Forte collaboration “Falling For You” stamp set and Blustery Day stencil.

To begin this card, I ink blended Telephone Box Color Hive ink through the Blustery Day stencil on watercolor paper. Next, I flipped it over and blended English Mustard Color Hive ink through the stencil.

Then, I spritzed the stencil with some water and, using a paintbrush, flicked the ink on the stenciled panel for a splattered look.

I cut the panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and put it to the side. Next, I stamped the images from the Falling For You stamp set on white cardstock using Eclipse Black Color Hive ink. I heat set the ink to make sure it was dry. Then, to add color to the images, I blended them with the ink that was left on my brushes so it would be very light. The colors used were Grand Canyon and English Mustard.

To finish the images, I blended the same colors over one of the Camouflage stencils and over the 3D Background Stencil.

Then, I fussy cut the leaves and pumpkin. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white and lightly blended English Mustard Color Hive ink on it. Then, I layered it on a strip of Eclipse Black cardstock. I cut an oval from gold cardstock I had in my stash. Before I assembled the card, I added Copic YG05 to the stem of the pumpkin. I adhered all of the pieces to the stenciled panel and added foam to the pumpkin for dimension. Then, I adhered it to the card base I cut from Telephone Box cardstock. To finish the card, I added some Solar Flair Crown Jewel Gems.

I just love the ease of adding color to the images by ink blending rather than coloring it in. The stencil almost gives it the look of stamping on background paper and fussy cutting it out.

Thank you for stopping by!
