A Glimmer of Autumn

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today. It really feels like Autumn here in Wales today, so it’s a perfect day for Jane Tyrrell to share one of her latest creations here on the blog! Jane and some of the other Design Team members have fallen in love with the awesome toadstool stamp from our Wonderland ‘Caterpillar’ stamp set, as you will see…

Good Afternoon, September has arrived and there is definitely a nip in the air in the mornings and evenings, which shows that autumn is just around the corner. My crafting colour palette evolves and changes as I look around and see those provided by Mother Nature. The leaves are beginning to get those orange, red and brown tips as they get ready to fall. These are my potted acers in my garden..

My weekly dose of inspiration for Visible Image just uses the toadstool from the Caterpillar set.

I really do love this image and it works so well by itself.

Over the summer I have coloured these stamps in anything form red to purples and greens but for this card I went for an autumnal palette and painted it with distress inks

I also gave my toadstool and glimmery sheen with a wink of stella….it must be the dew at this time of the year ?

The background is the scene of a cave for Mr Caterpillar to turn into a pupa in during the cooler months, made with alcohol inks on glossy card stock.

I also used the sentiment and some of the stamps from the fab ‘Glimmer of light‘ set. I will confess this is the first time I had inked up this set… but I am now in love.. it is brilliant!

I used the  small moths

the little light bulb and the sentiment to finish off my card.

and here it is finished…

I hope I may have inspired you to start your own autumnal crafting too… it’s the one time of the year that I reach for orange in my colour palette!

Thanks for stopping by.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
