Autumn Medley from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies! Just a quick post to share one of my projects for this  month's gorgeous stamps over at the Chocolate Baroque DT Blog I just love all four of the beautiful ladies in the Four Seasons collection and this project features the lovely Autumn Medley. I began by spreading a thick layer of texture paste over the stamp and leaving her for a couple of days to dry.

Once the texture paste was dry I carefully peeled it away from the stamp and triimmed the edges to neaten it up. Then I painted it with acrylic paints, I was really pleased with the effect they gave

I took an oval mdf shape and applied texture paste through a woodgrain stencil, adding a thick layer around the edge of the piece. Once that was dry I painted with acrylic paints in shades of brown and then attached the lady so that her hair wood blend into the wood. I added some flowers, leaves and raffia from my stash and used a little mdf sentiment from my stash to finish off.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafting by Designs: Anything goes
Creative Artiste: Anything mixed media goes
Emerald City: anything goes
That's Crafty: anything goes
Stamps and Stencils: colour texture shape

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

  1. How beautiful Claire this is all about Autumn and my favourite of all the seasons. Thank you for sharing and joining in with the That's Crafty *Anything Goes* Blog Challenge... Tracey x

  2. Gorgeous! What a wonderful technique that gives amazing results. Did leaving the texture paste on the stamp that many days harm the stamp and how did you clean it off? Interesting in attempting this.

    1. Hi Sande, thanks for your kind comment. I've used this technique quite a few times and once it's dry the texture paste just peels cleanly off the stamp. it doesn't damage the stamp at all. I sometimes ink the stamp up with versamark first but I often forget lol. Once you've peeled the image away from the stamp there may be a few little bits of texture paste left on the stamp but they soon come off with a baby wipe xx
