I'm back today to share an autumn take on a couple of spring stamp sets along with the Wildflowers & Weeds silhouette set.
I was playing around with some background ideas and thinking about the russet tones of the landscape in late summer and early fall. It is such a pretty time of year if you gravitate toward those earthier hues and they are out there long before the leaves start to turn on the trees.
I made the background by sponging Distress Inks onto Bazzill Card Shoppe in Marshmallow, spritzed with water, and then dried with a heat gun:
The stump image and rabbit are stamped in Versafine Onyx and
then colored with colored pencils blended with Gamsol.
The bunny is attached with foam adhesive.
You can purchase adhesive foam in pieces or in tape,
and some are thicker than others. I couldn't decide whether to attach
the rabbit with foam or flat, so I used a thinner variety of foam
for a lower profile.
Here's a closeup of the flower detail so you can see the
line quality of the stamp and also the coloring.
I find that adding a little yellow to the leaves, and a bit of
reddish brown to the grass area is
a nice touch when coloring vegetation.
Once I had the coloring and the background done,
I thought using some of the stamps from Wildflowers & Weeds
would make a nice addition, so I stamped a few with Adirondack
Terra Cotta ink. It brings dimension to the scene and adds to the
late summer theme in color and shapes.
I then added a smattering of white gel pen dots throughout
the background highlighting the vegetation and by the sentiment.
There were a half dozen possibilities for the card base color,
and I chose Kraft. . . but sponged the edges with Delicata gold ink.
Here are the sets used: Woodland Scenes, Rabbit and Cart, and Wildflowers & Weeds:
Hope you are enjoying a beautiful time of year wherever you are!
Thanks for stopping by :) .
