Hello everyone! Hope you are having a lovely fall and I am not quite ready for winter cards yet so I wanted to focus on some beautiful fall colors but all with this month’s theme of a “see-through element”. For all three of this month’s cards, I created autumn-colored backgrounds with a Gelli plate and acrylic paint and then used my two favorite See-Through techniques using a raised frame (The Window Die) and a strip of vellum to hold a sentiment over a colorful, busy background. I love layers and using a very colorful textured print with stamping on top is wonderful but sometimes hard to add a sentiment on top.
The See-Through Vellum pairs beautifully with a die-cut on top like the Sunflower Fancy Die or the beautiful garden window both from Hero Arts. I stamped on top of the colorful backgrounds with complementary fall colors, dark brown shadow ink for the silhouetted images on top. I like to set a color palette when I start and for this, it was orange, olive green, and a butter yellow.
I also combined stamps from four Hero Arts stamp sets and three dies from my collection. It is so nice to get out all of your supplies from a season and mix them all up. I hope this inspires you to create some painted or stamped backgrounds and overlay them with some Vellum, Fancy die-cuts, and or windows.
Make sure that you link up your See-Through creations for a chance to win a $50 gift card from our wonderful sponsor Hero Arts.
We look forward to seeing your makes! Lee Ann
