STAMPlorations Theme and Photo challenge reminder

 Good afternoon, just stopping by to share a card and to remind you that there is still time to join in at the STAMPlorationsTheme and Photo Challenge.

For my card I used the theme of autumn colours and the leaves and the rim of the mug for my inspiration.
To start, I used a background panel I printed awhile ago using my Gelli plate. I reinked my plate with Spiced Marmalade, Fossilised Amber and Gather Twigs DOx and then placed the  Autumn Falling stencil over and laid my preprinted panel over that, then took a print. I love the soft effect this technique gives you. 
On a scrap of watercolour paper, I stamped three of the maple leaves from the Leafy stamp set and heat embossed with gold EP before flooding the leaves with a watery mix of Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Pine Needles and Gathered Twigs DI. 
The printed panel was cut down to size and a length of jute twine added in a circular pattern to replicate the mug and the fussy cut leaves added. The sentiment from the Softly stamp set was stamped in two stages, the first in white EP on black and second just in Altenew's Pure Graphite ink. I fussy cut the 'masterpiece' and added it to the black stamped strip to recreate the sentiment. The finished panel was added on pads to an off-white base card.

  1. Great use of the colours.

  2. Wow, your leaves are stunning and I love the soft images in the gelli background! So glad you were able to join us at Sunday Stamps with your lovely card!

  3. Just beautiful! Love your fall design. Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps, hope to see you again soon!

  4. Love this, Julie! The gold embossed leaves look so gorgeous colored in these soft washes of color! Amazing background for them, too! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  5. A great take on the inspiration picture Julie, the leaves and jute look fabulous together. Some leaves are quite yellow here, yet others are only just starting to change. Masses of acorns this year and more sloes than we have ever seen (plenty of sloe gin on the go!!). We are still enjoying the horses being out too, it's normally too wet by now. Long may this dry spell continue down here xx

  6. A beautiful seasonal creation, many thanks for sharing and joining us at Stamping Sensations Autumn challenge.
