ATSM, ColourQ, Less Is More, Time Out, Uniko

Hi everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying our Indian summer. No autumn leaves here yet!

I sponged ink through a stencil to create a background, and sponged inks onto the die-cut leaves.

CASology, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Time Out

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good weekend.

It was the first day of Autumn two days ago here in the UK, our leaves are still green but I wanted to make something with an "autumnal feel".

The stitched leaf die-cuts were inked using Cut N Dry Foam with distress inks, I added a stitched circle die cut from vellum and a SSS die-cut sentiment, with some ink splattering in the background.

Thanks for looking!

Time Out, Uniko, Seize The Birthday, STAMPlorations

My take on Time Out's photo inspiration.

I coloured the stamped flowers lightly with alcohol pens and intensified the colours with pencils. Wasn't sure about the sentiment but quite like the contrast between the delicate image and bold sentiment.
