PAINTED AUTUMN INSPIRATION - FANCY FRIDAY BLOG HOP

Welcome to this months Fancy Friday blog hop!  The theme is Painted Autumn Inspiration, where we are encouraged to use the colours from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and also to use the watercolour technique.


I used the right colours, I used the right Designer Series Paper, but I didn't quite use the right technique!  Oops!  You see, I have been so busy playing with the new Stampin Blends, available to customers November 1st, that I forgot all about the "water" part of the colouring!


But he is just too cute not to share with you, right?  I love all the rich colours in this DSP so choosing  few colours to use is easy.  There are so many in this pack that at least some are bound to appeal to you.  I went with a rather busy piece, rich with oranges, but with a lovely, subtle, contrasting blue.


Initially I was a bit stuck for ideas, happens to us all, I know!  I got word that a very special lady I know was in CCU and I wanted to cheer her on and up, so these cutie patootie pigs came to mind and the card came together pretty quickly once I had someone in mind to receive it.  I think it will make her smile, don't you?

Next up on the hop is Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs.  She creates the most amazing projects and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us this time!  I bet she remembered to watercolour!
