Fall Inspired Greeting Card (Crafting Away From Home #3)

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The theme of the challenge is Halloween And/Or Be Thankful. I am the author of this challenge. We have two sponsors for this challenge.

This post is also the third of my Crafting Away From Home series. I pre-printed the image at home on Strathmore Bristol paper. I also chose the patterned papers I will use for this card which is from Simple Stories Autumn Splendor. I also brought the coordinating ephemera pack just in case I will be able to use it.

I used the only color medium I brought with me, the Akashiya Sai Watercolor brush pens, to color the image. I trimmed the panel using a trimmer which I brought with me, too. I just eyeballed trimming the colored panel. Luckily, it came out at 4"x 4" which was perfect for my layout. 

I used the Misti Stamping Tool to measure the patterned paper. I placed a mark at the 4 1/4" and used this as a guide where to trim the paper, then trimmed 1/2" off the other side to make it into 5 1/2" long.

For the sentiment, I fussy cut one of the cut apart patterned papers. To add dimension, I adhered left over watercolor papers behind the fussy cut sentiment. I adhered this to a strip of orange patterned paper. 

I adhered the strip and the watercolored panel to the patterned paper panel. I added photo corners to the watercolored panel by cutting up a left over patterned paper into triangles. 

Thank you for viewing my blog. I hope to see your creations at the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
