Gradient Backgrounds- One Layer Wonders

Here's a group of one layer cards. I was still on a water-colour blending kick on that luscious cotton paper. For the backgrounds, I free-handed the water-colouring, let them blend and then stamped overtop once everything was dry.

Supplies: Stamps: Harvest Berries, Through the Trees
Paper: Savoy Cotton- White and Natural
Ink: Pacific Point, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Cranberry Crisp, Early Espresso

I wasn't as fond of the re-inker colours here. I used Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cranberry Crisp (an interesting food mix, haha). The curry was not quite the right colour, which is why I wanted to try jazz up the water-colour background a bit. I masked off the background and stamped words and then the leaves.
Stamps: Leaf Prints, Background Basics: Text Style, Autumn Abundance
Ink: Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cranberry Crisp, Early Espresson
Paper: Savoy Cotton- Naturals
