Autumn Inspiration


Hello, long time no see!  I've had a busy couple of months on the DT team, but I've taken a few hours out to play along with Chocolate Baroques Colour Challenge #26.  http://chocolatebaroquechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/  I've really missed doing these challenges, and I've had a brilliant time making this card.



I have used a selection of stamps from these sets.

I used these Brusho colours.

The Pine cone stencil, Claret embossing powder and Sepia Versafine ink.



I started with a piece of white card and using the 'dry to wet' technique I made the background.  This means that I sprinkled Brushos over the card then spritzed it with water, allowing the colour crystals to randomly spread over the card.  I then left it to dry naturally.  The picture below has different colours on to the ones used for this artwork, but it shows how the technique works.


Next I stamped and heat embossed all the images that I wanted to use from the stamp sets, then painted them with the Brusho's mixed with water and fussy cut them.   




Once the background was dry I stencilled the pine cones along the top of the panel in Fired Brick DI.  I then stamped several more images randomly all over the panel, using Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick DI's.  I painted the Honesty seeds in with DI to make them pop.  






I blended some DI around the edges of the panel, then matted it onto black card and layered it onto a base card.  I shaped and attached the images with 3D glue to the card. 




I stamped, heat embossed, coloured and cut out the apples, then attached them to the group stamping with 3D glue.



Finally I stamped, heat embossed, matted and layered the sentiment.  I chose this one because my inspiration for this piece was watching Lesley Wharton on tv using the Brushos, it rekindled my love of these little pots of loveliness!

  5. Oh how I would love to see you on YouTube. I have these brushes but they do t come out like what you have plus I only have 3 colours. This is simply stupendous! I love the background with the gothic cathedral in The background surrounded by leaves and the the strong leaves and fruit that you coloured and adhered to the card. Amazing work!!
