Newton's Nook Designs September Release - Fall-ing for You

Hi crafty friends! We're back with the third day of Newton's Nook Designs September release. Today we're showcasing Fall-ing For You.  This is such a wonderful mini-set and so perfect for Fall! PSL anyone?
Pumpkin Spice & You by Handmade by Yuki | Newton's Nook Designs: Fall-ing for You
I started off by die cutting a piece of watercolor card stock using a stitched rectangle die. I created my own stamped background by randomly stamping the images and purposely trying to stay within the stitched lines. I watercolored the stamped images with Gansai Tambi watercolors. I then filled in the background with my Green Gray Zig Clean Color marker, again trying to stay within the stitched lines. Once the watercoloring was completely dry, I die cut the center piece using a smaller stitched rectangle die. I also cut a piece of vellum using the same rectangle die and gold heat embossed the sentiment directly onto the vellum. I adhered the inner rectangle portion directly onto the kraft card base and layered the vellum layer right on top. To securely adhere the vellum, I used glue dots behind the embossed portions. I finished the card by adhering the main panel onto the card base with foam tape.
