Autumn Walk Hanging
Here is my make for a couple of September challenges at two of my favourite places which I haven't managed to play at for too long. Craft a Scene and A Vintage Journey
As I'm touring in Norfolk and Lincolnshire as we speak I had to make the little grey cells work hard as I only had very limited supplies with me. Edit: I'm Home now. I tried to post this while away gave up after wifi signal was so poor wouldn't let me upload anything!!!! I have emailed my entry to Craft a Scene but will now add link there hope this ok with them.
The stamp I have used is a Sheena Douglass stamp from her new Country Christmas set so it is meant to be a winter scene...... so to alter the look I first inked up some white card with distress inks (I never leave home without them) in autumnal colours, dried marigold, rusty hinge and mustard seed, stamped in archival black and coloured in the couple with distress inks and water....... mown lawn and rusty hinge, also adding extra colour where needed. I like it when a stamp can be used for more than it was designed for makes me use them more.
I also had a some spellbinders die sets in the "van" left from another trip......no wonder I can't find anything. ?......... :)) I cut lots of leaves in white card and also orange green and kraft which I inked before taking out of the dies using same colours as before.
I cut up a piece of packaging and embossed a Kraft piece of card with a bark effect embossing folder going over the embossing with vintage photo and rusty hinge to highlight the bark effect, which I then stuck to the packaging to make my hanging sturdier. The black card was cut using spellbinders and main image was attached to this. I also found some string after a rummage in the "van" and used this as my hanging loop and also tied several strips into a knot and frayed them out.
I was pleased how my hanging turned out having limited supplies certainly makes you focus more and proving a stamp isn't just for Christmas lol.
Thanks for looking
