So, here is my contribution to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team challenge blog this month. The theme is autumn, so I've gone for shades of yellow and green.
I began with a large tag and blended some DI's over the area I wanted to stamp the leaves in the foreground. I've had these stamps for AGES - they were some of the first I ever bought and I'd more or less forgotten them. I kiss-stamped them first (a technique I hadn't used for a long time) onto texture stamps (from the Artistic Stamper - I used dogtooth, hexagon and sequin waste textures) and then went over them with a Versamark pen (not very expertly!) and glazed them with clear detail embossing powder.
After that I blended more shades of DI over the background and went back with the leaf stamps, stamping two or three generations with Memento ink. Because I'd glazed the leaves in the foreground I didn't have to mask them but just wipe them - cool, eh? I finished by stamping the words.
I'm also entering this in
