Isn't it surprising where you get your inspiration from? Earlier today my fiend Colette Halstead http://www.colettehalstead.co.uk/ who makes some fabulous fused glass pieces, posted a picture on facebook of some seed heads that she had harvested last Autumn it was such a lovely picture I thought I must have a bash at turning that into a card. The colours are not quite as orange - down to the choice of inks pads that I had to play with.
I used a whole mix of adirondaks, distress inks and archival black for the stamping. The stamps are from Inkylicious.
I honestly don't think I could have done this without my splodgemat. talk about brayering or what.
I started with the topper and covered in sunshine yellow, then built up the colours with wild honey, spiced marmalade, vintage photo mushroom and then went round the edge with a bit of pitch black. I treated the card in the same fashion but kept it lighter by stopping after I had added a touch of vintage photo.
I stamped with the archival black and added the verse.
I hope you like it - I am quite chuffed
Thanks for stopping by.
