Craft Stamper Magazine October Take It Make It challenge started today. This month we are inspired by the beautiful autumn season and creating autumnal projects; the task is to create anything at all using autumnal imagery or using seasonal/earth tone colours: reds, oranges, greens, yellows, browns. Stamped patterns must be included somewhere on the project, but the project itself can be of any type (card, ATC, scrapbook page, art journal page, home decor piece, ...)
Our lovely sponsor this month is That's Crafty!, and one lucky winner will get a set of eight (!!) stamps by That's Crafty!
My stamped autumn card was created using lovely Simon Says Stamp flower stamps and two masking techniques. First I layered the stamped images using masking stamping technique, and then covered the stamped images with masking fluid before continuing working on the background.
Masking fluid is liquid rubber, and once it dries it's almost impossible to remove from a standard brush. Silicone brushes are great to be used with masking fluid and the dried rubber can be easily peeled off from the non-stick coat, but wooden BBQ skewers work just as well.
The background is coloured with Distress inks and gold colour texture paste. For colouring the flowers I used red and dark purple Promarkers and a white pastel pencil.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
