Hello November...

Hello friends!  Hope you're having a great week!  I can hardly believe it's November, I truly do love this time of year!  I really enjoyed the neutral pallet that I used here, very fall like.
 Now, I don't have a tutorial but here's a few pictures for you and I will walk you through it.  I brushed stripes of watered down distress inks with a large brush onto watercolor paper.  Did some further distressing with distress stain spray, water and biscotti perfect pearls mist.  It was really hard to capture the beauty of the pearlescent shimmer from the biscotti perfect pearls mist, but you can kind of see it in this picture.
 Then you can see a little bit of the shimmer in this picture as well.
 I cannot even tell you how much I'm going to enjoy creating this birch tree thin die, I love it!  I diecut the Birch tree silhouette and the feather out of watercolor cardstock then colored with distress inks.  I also did a little stamping on the feather with a small script stamp.
 I love it when I can also incorporate natural element into my project.  I have a dear friend that gifted me some beautiful polkadot feathers.  I thought it paired well with this card, along with a twig from my backyard.  I colored some crinkle ribbon and tied a bow, then layered everything up on some black Kraft Core cardstock.
