Autumn garland (posted by Elaine)

Like the other girls in the team, I have really enjoyed working with the Terrific Treescapes clear stamps. It is hard not to be inspired by the amazing aumtumn colours around us at the moment and this is my attempt to capture the mood of this lovely season.


I started off with a white die cut oval and added several different die inks, using a masked sun and hills to build up my landscape. I stamped in my trees with coffee archival ink.  I fixed the oval onto a kraft panel matted onto a brown 8 x 8 card. I then cut lots of different leaves and twigs in autmny colours using the Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings die and used them to frame the inked landscape. I added a sentiment from the Artisitc Affirmations set.

  5. Absolutely delightful & ticking all my colour boxes too. The garland is gorgeous as a frame & adds such lovely interest & tactility as well as the colour. The use of kraft with this design is beautiful & I love the dark framing border.
