The Colours of Autumn is the new challenge at A Vintage Journey - chosen by the very talented Astrid. My plan was to use my new butterfly (die and texture fade) to make a card - but I got carried away and ended up with 4 butterflies so decided to go 3 dimensional!
The butterflies are all made slightly differently with inks, distress paints, embossing powder, glossy accents and mica powder., Not sure how much of this is visible on the images though! I folder them gently and joined them in the middle to make my 3d butterfly - adding a little coiled wire for the antennae.
I had also been playing with inks and sprays to create autumnal colours on some watercolour paper so decided to decorate an ATB.
The base of the ATB has fresco paints and crackle glaze.
The layers are made from my watercolour paper experiments with die cuts of Tim's trellis and leaves - which were inked or painted in various colours with crackle glossy accents added to the autumn leaves.
I then cut various other autumnal leaves to finish my piece.
I would like to enter this into:
Inspiration Emporium - Fall is in the Air
Katzelkraft - Colours of Autumn
The Artistic Stamper - Autumn Colours
Eclectic Paperie - Fall
