Visible Image Stamps October 2013 Challenge 'Colours of Autumn', using Distress inks & Wow Embossing powders.

Hello again,

The start of a new month means the start of a new Challenge at the

This months theme is 'Colours of Autumn', you just need to use at least one Visible Image Stamp, so come on have a go and enter, you could be the lucky winner of £20 to spend on new stamps.

This is my DT sample, I hope it gives you some inspiration.

I started off with some white card, I coloured it lightly with some distress inks in Mustard seed, Ripe persimmon and Tumbled glass and dried it. I stamped 'Grunge Flourish', (one of my favorite stamps), with Versamark around the edges of the coloured card, and heat embossed using clear WOW embossing powder. I then coloured over with Chipped Sapphire Distress inks, and gave it a polish.

Next I stamped 'Classic Face' in Chipped Sapphire, and heat embossed again using clear embossing powder. She was coloured using Vintage photo and her lips are Ripe Persimmon, I gave her a tear using glossy accents !!

The flowers were made from the bottom wings of the 'Butterfly', which were coloured and stamped, again using Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon and Rusty Hinge, then cut out, shaped and glued together, I added threaded buttons to the centers.
Before assembling I found a piece of lace, distressed it, and added it.
