Delicious Autumn

Delicious Autumn.

Well here's another set of Stamps from the Graphicus open day that are just so me !

"Fall Season" by Inkadinkadoo





Below:

Card stock was firstly inked up with the Tim Holtz Adirondack Colourwash inks in Butterscotch, Lettuce and a touch of Red Pepper . The main leaf stamp randomly stamped using various tones of browns, reds and greens.


Below:

Next came over stamping with the Delicious Autumn stamp: I really enjoy making back-grounds - just a pity that we often cover most of it up with our next layers :-(



Below:

The main topper was one piece - again inked up with Tim Holtz Adirondack Colourwash inks in Butterscotch, Cranberry, Red Pepper and Lettuce.

The large scroll leaf stamp was used down the edges and the tree in the centre. Over the Tree I embossed in a mix of Detail Gold and Pewter. The smaller leaf scroll was used at each side, embossed in the Detail gold. Next the whole thing was sliced in 3.


Below:

The three sections matted up on to green then gold, then on to the background, which was then mounted on to gold and finally on to a burgundy A5 card.




Below:

Card tilted to the light to show the embossing.

I'd also like to say a big Thank You to Lynn who has inspired me to get out all my Adirondack inks again and have an almighty play about with them again - I'd fogotten just how much fun they are !

Wow Deby! Not only did you pick one of my fave stamp sets but what you've done with it is fantastic, I really love it. Your colour mix is scrummy. It was great to see you on Saturday, I'm so pleased you felt inspired to play with your inks again, I enjoyed it too and can't wait to get inky again over the holidays. Looking forward to seeing more!

Deby that is really gorgeous - I love the rich colours, they remind me of the pix I'e seen of American fall scenes.

The colours and the themes are just beautiful. I must get my hands on some of those inks! It does seem a shame to cover up the lovely leafy paper - it is easily good enough to stand alone.
