Autumn Peppers

Good morning, friends. How's the weather over at your end? Here's it's wet, cold and windy... perfect weather to be at home ... crafting. Oh well...., maybe one day, eh? For now I want to show you a step card featuring the stalk of peppers from Chocolate Baroque's new October release stamps called Autumn Poppy A4 stamp sheet.

I created the background by blending Tim Holtz Distress Inks in blue and yellow. The colours are: Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Bundled Sage and Squeezed Lemonade. On the side panels I used one of the leafy stamps from the Autumn Poppy set and TH's DI Peacock Feathers to frame and create a background. On the central panel I used a stamp from the Texture Fragments A4 stamp sheet and Mowed Lawn.  

The sentiment is from the Loving Sentiments A5 stamp sheet and I stamped it on vellum with Brilliance Graphite Black. It's fast drying, slightly pearlescent and perfect for stamping on vellum. For layering I used red CS - the contrast really makes the blues and greens pop. More fussy cut leaves in the bottom panel. 


I stamped the peppers with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured the image with these Graph'It markers:
Leaves: Amazon, Tuscany, Pistachio, Anise
Peppers: Halloween, Carrot, Curry, Mango, Honey
Flower: Mimosa, Sun, Lemon
Stalk: Mocha, Bronze
A little fussy cutting, quick dry glue and voila!


A few challenges for this card:


That's all from me today. Must dash.... plenty to do. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see y'all tomorrow!
