The new challenge has started over at The Paper Funday, this month it's an Autumn theme.
This started life as an experiment with a mixed media plate and some dye inks, I can't remember which inks as it was a few months ago. I make several of these pieces and keep them handy for backgrounds on future projects.
The Lavinia Stamps silhouettes really make a great picture on this type of background, especially for me as my colouring in isn't all that good. I stamped the branch, fairy and hare in Versafine black ink a few days ago and left it to one side. After looking at it again I realised all it needed was a few autumnal falling leaves, these were stamped in Distress Oxides.
The hardest part was then to find mat layers that would pick out the colour of the leaves. I found a pearl orange, a mid brown and an antique gold to use before finally putting it on a kraft card blank. It has no greeting so it can be used for a nice little 'hello, how are you?' card.
The Paper Funday accept any project that fits the theme as long as it's made with card or paper, it doesn't have to be a greeting card, it could be a gift box or a scrap layout, whatever it is we'd love to see it.
