Hi, today I have my entry for the Stamps and Stencils blog challenge,
Up, Up and Away with a twist, using Autumn colours.
So it was out with my PaperArtsy paints. I am usually a blue and green colour choice, so this was a distinct change for me. There is Pumpkin Soup, Butternut, Autumn Fire, Smoked Paprika and Haystack in the background. I stencilled over that with numbers using the bumping technique with Brown shed and Vanilla. TH Wildflower stencil is in the background using Ground Espresso DI. TH Harlequin stencil on two of the corners, a PaperArtsy HP script stamp using Vanilla paint over the background. I stamped the sentiment using Ground Espresso DI as I love the colour, but I think that it would have been a better choice to have used an Archival ink, just didn't have the colour I wanted. Still, I outlined it with white pen to help lift it more clearly from my colourful background. I added a seperate piece of card using foam pads to raise it up for dimension. It is coloured with Distress inks and stamped with the script stamp. The lovely bird stamp from PaperArtsy Hot Picks, more wildflowers stencil and finished with the postcard top from the new Christmas set by Sara Naumann.
Thank you for visiting and reading about my design, thank you for taking the time to comment, I love to read them.
I have also found that my design will suit the Country View Crafts blog challenge, Numbers.
So I have entered my design there too. As well as the lovely large stencilled numbers using a Tim Holtz Stencil, there are some smaller numbers stamped on the background in Distress Inks which have not shown up very well in my photograph.
