Autumn Windmill Tutorial

 Hello and happy Friday! I'm in the mood for fall, so I pulled out Country Roads and some of the pretty new Memento colors to make this autumn inspired card.

 To begin, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory card stock to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches, then sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink in the center.

 I cut a mask using Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Classic Circles Sm and adhered using repositionable tape. Then I sponged More Memento Cantaloupe around the circle.

 Sponged Memento Toffee Crunch around the edges.

 Then sponged Memento Peanut Brittle.

 Next, I sponged Memento Rich Cocoa around the edges, then removed the mask and sponged some clouds using Memento Rich Cocoa and Peanut Brittle.

 Then using a stiff bristle brush, I added some Copic opaque white ink for some lighter clouds.

 I stamped the windmill with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

 Then stamped the larger foliage several times, with Memento Rich Cocoa.

And stamped the smaller foliage with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The sentiment is from Follow Your Dreams and also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I layered with Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate and used Honey Mustard for the card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches). 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
