Luckily I had a preview of some of the new stamps for this weekend's TV shows on C&C to prepare some samples from. So I decided to go with these and good old faithful "Puck" such a lovely and versatile stamp!
I wanted to create "Autumn Tints" and the feel of the falling leaves all crisp and crunching.
I wanted to use orange tints with a rich plummy colour so I chose distress inks Aged Mahogony and Spiced Marmalade to blend on the base using the oh so clever and amazing Splodgemat!
The leaf border at the bottom will be new on the show tomorrow, you can't see it all here but it's fab! I stamped this in Walnut Stain distress ink. Puck was simply stamped in Aged Mahogony, coloured with pro-markers and decoupaged. For the leaves I lightly blended Spiced Marmalade again onto paper and stamped the leaves in Aged Mahogony before cutting out and screwing up to give great texture. I attached them with foam pads. My favourite product of the moment is Beadazzles, pots of tiny metalic glass beads and glitz which I stuck on randomly on the base using glossy accents to add detail and texture!
Hope you like this, next one will be in Nov, the theme of happiness, Ummmm
Thanks for looking
