Hello there, it's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Autumn Colours'. We're starting to see the first signs of those lovely autumn shades here so it's a perfect theme for this time of the year. My teamies have created some stunning projects to inspire you and we've got a fab prize from Flonzcraft for our lucky winner too! We do need you to ink up those clear/rubber stamps though, no digi stamps allowed!
I've had a lot of messy fun creating this wall hanging for my DT project.
My first job was to colour the image, Autumn Medley from Chocolate Baroque with my Graph'it Markers. I cut her out and set to making a background for her.
I began with corrugated card, spritzing with a little water to remover the top layer and then painting with shades of brown/orange/green/gold and copper acrylic paint. I set that aside to dry. Next I cut white card to size and stamped the image where I wanted her to give me a guide when I started sloshing paint around. I diluted some acrylic paints and created a background of runny paint in autumn shades by letting the paint run down the card. Once that was dry I applied distress ink in Brushed Corduroy to fill in any gaps.
I took lots of flowers, a little piece of tulke a grungeboard heart and key and some ribbon from my stash and sprayed them with Starburst stains and glimmer mists. While they were drying I used my glue gun to write 'Autumn' on my glass cutting mat. I had to have a few attempts but it was fun and for a change I managed not to burn my fingers lol. Once the wording had cooled I painted it with acrylics and highlighted with a little gilding wax.
I put the canvas together and added a few little berries, some raffia and a few more highlights using gilding wax.
