I love to watercolour a tartan and saw a lovely fall colourway on a phone case the other day that I took inspiration from for this card. My immediate thought with these beautiful Large Stitched Oak and Large Stitched Maple leaves was to watercolour them, but I think having the watercoloured pattern as a background and the leaves plain lets the intricate stitched detail of the leaves shine. Today’s post is part of a blog hop with offers and giveaways to celebrate the new Simon Says Stamp Cheer And Joy release. Please see the end of this post for the blog hop details.

I started by painting the tartan with Daniel Smith watercolours on Arches Cold-Pressed watercolour card – Moonglow base followed by stripes in Indrathrone Blue, Quinacridone Violet, Sepia and Quinacridone Burnt Orange. I then die cut the panel with a Nested Circle die. I stamped a simple Thankful sentiment from the 30 Days Of Thankful 2019 set from CZ Design in clear embossing ink and white heat embossed.
