The theme for our quintiles swap at Chocolate Baroque this month is Autumn Days. I actually made these a little while ago to make sure they were done in time as I had my sister to stay with me for a few days, so I hope I can remember how I made them.
I did this one first using torn copy paper and duster brushes with distress inks to create the landscape. The cloudy effect in the sky was achieved by brushing blue ink against the edge of a die cut flower and moving it around and overlapping between inking. This technique was shown to me by a friend who had discovered it while inking petal edges to layer up into a flower.I think the die she used was a Spellbinders.
Having got my background, I inked the tree stamp with distress markers in autumnal colours and stamped it to the left adding a little stamping of the leafy edges of the tree stamp in the bottom corrner to ground them a bit. In the right hand corner I used the leafy corner stamp inked with distress inks, I think I used forest moss, rusty hinge and wild honey, and then added clear embossing powder and heated it to give a bit of a shine. Both the tree and leaf stamps are from Chocolate Baroque and the word stamp and the birds are Inkylicious. To frame the tile I inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.
