Autumn Woodland (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with some projects made for Lesley's shows on Hochanda. I was really happy to have a play with these gorgeous stamps.

This first card features stamps from Tall Trees. I created a little scene on linen card using a torn paper mask and distress inks before stamping the trees with brown ink. I then cleaned the stamp and inked up the top part of the trees with gilding glue and stamped again before applying glitter in shades of green, orange and brown. The sentiment is from Birthday Words.

My second project is a canvas board. I began with a brusho background and then stamped the trees (from  Fantasy Woodland) and embossed with gold embossing powder. I added some little dots of clear glue and created some foliage with beadazzles.

Next I took some brown acrylic paint and grounded the trees. Once that was dry I stencilled in some leaves using green acrylic paint and the Useful Leaves stencil. Next I added some falling leaves using the Seasonal Elements stencil and the word Autumn using the Seasonal Journey stencil and iridescent paste. Once the paste was dry I coloured the leaves and word with alcohol markers.

Last but not least I've made a little kraft card using the beautiful toadstool border from Autumn Edges. I coloured the image with pencils, added white spots with a white Posca pen and sketched in some foliage. I added a sentiment embossed in white (from Birthday Words) and added some red pompom trim.

Thanks so much for visiting today, keep checking back as my teamies have some gorgeous projects to inspire you.

  6. Three very pretty cards Claire and I think my favourite is the last as I adore kraft card and red, and those toadstools are lovely bright red shades and the white spots show up beautifully using the pen. That saying I also love the softness of the tones in the first with that beautiful scene, and the canvas is full of interest using the different mediums and the colours are great. x
