Around the World on Wednesday - The World Around Us

Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are here for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball, I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  Welcome to 
Stampin' with the Bees.  

Thanks so much to Angie McKenzie for inviting me to participate in the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!!  I was so excited to be asked!! 

Today's Theme is The World Around Us

I live in Southern Ontario, and right now we are having the most gorgeous fall weather and the colours are bursting!!

My card is inspired by all the gorgeous colours. I used the Love of Leaves bundle and it is absolutely perfect!!
I die cut a bunch of leaves out of water colour paper, soaked them down with the new wide brush water painter. Then added colour with one of the more traditional water painters. I used Mango Melody, Cajun Craze and Pear Pizzazz. Dabbing on the colour until it was just right and rewetting it as needed. The ink runs and blends better the more water you have. But keep a paper towel nearby just in case. There is also a thing as too much water. 

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it!! Everything used is available at my online store if you live in Canada, just click on the Canada Flag on your right.

Please keep hopping to see every one else's beautiful creations!!
