Hi there...are all you northern hemisphere dwellers enjoying some cooler fall weather? I am loving the bite of fall in the air.

 Today's card is for the challenge over at Inspired by All the Little Things.

I love the browns with just a touch of color.  For my card the main panel is watercolor paper white embossed with some leaf shapes from A Muse Studio.  I spritzed the paper with water then sprinkled on some brown brusho's in the open area of the panel.  I tilted and spun the card to get coverage all over, but not within the leaves.   Lastly, I wet the leaves lightly, and sprinkle more of the brown brusho powder into the leaf areas, I did not brush them out or add more water. I wanted the intense colors of the power pigments showing all the different shades.

I mounted it onto some textured tissue paper on a card base and added the thanks die cut (I think its from SSS).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. Not much enjoying the cold weather, but this card surely has me warming up!! OH Cat, I could have used you on Tuesday for a lesson! This is stunning!

  8. Hi Cat, I actually am enjoying the change in weather and the colors. I find myself reaching for the fall colors more and more as you have seen on my blog. This water color card is gorgeous. I have a few brusho colors, but nothing like this one, and I LOVE the subtle look of the various hues and colors. Super pretty with the contrasting white. Hope your week is going well.

  9. OH, Cat, this is simply beautiful. You achieved a gorgeous look with the Brushos. I love how the white pops against the pretty colors. Beautifully done!

    Please send some of the cooler temperatures in my direction.
    Have a lovely weekend.
