Autumn Berries

I've done one more watercolour card for the new CAS Watercolour challenge and am squeaking in before the deadline tonight.


I love the way leaves turn colour and, on some plants, berries appear in the place of flowers in the autumn.  Here's my card:


It's a very traditional way to use watercolour - simply painting the image with watercolour pan paints!  As much as I love playing with all the new watercolour mediums (like Brushos and Bister) and all the new techniques, I do still love just colouring my image with paints.

Enjoy the last of autumn!






Supplies:
Stamps - Magenta leaves and berries, unknown sentiment
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black
Paper - watercolour paper, PTI Vintage Cream
Size - A2
Accessories - Sizzix die, twine, foam tape, watercolour paints
