two cards with essentials by ellen fallish

I'm so excited for fall and the changing of the leaves but it's been 80 degrees at my house so I thought I would make fall cards with pretty leaves. And the perfect stamp set to use? The Essentials by Ellen Fallish set

It's such a gorgeous set that I decided to make two cards, one "clean" and one "messy" with the Distress Watercolor Pencils.
For the messy one, I tried to stamp a random background but it's so hard not to overthink it, LOL! Then I use a wet paint brush directly on the watercolor pencil to pick up the color and paint with it. I didn't use watercolor cardstock so I wanted to just lay down a lot of color without moving the water around too much on my paper.
I really like the messy look but maybe I needed to go out of the lines even more so it seems intentional, haha!

And for the cleaner look, I tried to stamp the leaves in horizontal lines across the card front. It's probably not as precise as it could be but not bad for eye balling it!

I used one of my new favorite word dies on top, the Essentials by Ellen Thank You. I love the font so much!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
