Colours of Autumn


Today sees the start of a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is Autumnal colours - yellows, oranges, reds and greens. As always there is a generous prize of a $20 shopping voucher from FlonzCraft.

Again it's something I made back in the Summer and is another of my 5x7 flat canvases, I find this a great size to work with without being overwhelmed by too much space. The canvas came ready primed so I painted the whole piece with a dark acrylic paint called blood orange, then a thin coat of crackle glaze scraped on with an old credit card and a top coat of a neutral colour. Next some swirls added with stencil and grunge paste which I inked with DI's once dry and stamped around the edges with a Penny Black leaf image and some gilding wax. The flowers are all stamped and heat embossed with detail copper and cut out with the coordinating Heartflet Creations dies and some little Tattered Lace leaves tucked in around part of a Timmy clock die. The sentiment is also Penny Black. Finally a little chipboard Butterfly.

As I used up lots of snippets for the flowers I think it will be OK to enter into Di's Snippets Playground, I only popped in quickly last week to meet up with Parsnip............I'll say no more !

There are some lovely creations from my fellow teamies so I do hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and take look and join in with our challenge this month.

This is gorgeous Brenda. I think the crackle background makes the perfect base for your beautiful, Autumnal flowers to sit on. You've created so many lovely layers and so many different points of interest. I absolutely agree with what you say about the 5x7 canvas'being a great size to work with and your layout here is just perfect. Crafty Hugs, Sandra x

Love it Brenda and yes I also like the flat canvas boards they allow you to throw everything at it and no warping in sight.

The white crackled background with the darker edges allows the eye to be drawn into all those lovely leaves, flowers and sentiment. Again fabulous make.

Hope all is starting to settle down with you and that the pain is manageable, popping off to see what I have missed. Have a great day my friend.
