Hello crafty friends!
I start my card with a piece of 4.25" x 5.5" watercolor paper, stamping all the leaves with Distress Inks (Candied Apple, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo) and then I applied some water to all of them. As a last touch I splattered the same ink colors, which I think looks really cool. :)
After I finished my background, I layer a piece of vellum in 4" x 5.25" to soften the tone. The trick I learned for this stamp set is I prefer to die cut first then stamp all the images. I think it's easier that way, as I did with the berries and leaves. I use the cute owl from Harvest Happiness to stand on the wood log from Woodsy Creatures as the main piece of my card.
I stamped them with Versafine black ink and watercolored them with Distress Markers. After I finished all my elements, I arrange them all together and they look so pretty. Mixing your stamp sets always can give you a fresh look, and yes I know when it's easier to match all the pieces that come from the same set, but it's worth a try. I heat emboss the sentiment with copper embossing powder to match all the color tones together.
