Chocolate Baroque: Fragments For Autumn

Hello there, friends! I'm back with another Chocolate Baroque make. Today, I'm showcasing the June release Seasonal Fragments sheet. This sheet has 12 fragments which take through every month and every season of the year. In my previous posts I've played with spring - summer themes fragments and today we move on to Autumn.

I'm playing with 2 stamps from the Seasonal Fragments sheet with a late summer - autumn feel. To be honest, I'm not sure if these are meant to be autumnal but just roll with me here! :)

First I created a rich, spicy background by blending various shades of orange, yellow and brown Distress Inks: Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed,  Brushed Corduroy, Vinatge Photo and Walnut Stain. Then I stamped the fragments from the Seasonal Fragments sheet. I masked off the moon... in hindsight, I'm not sure I should have. But it's done! :)

The mushrooms are from the Autumn Poppy A4 sheet, coloured with Graph'It alcohol markers, fussy cut and adhered to the card.

Then I applied flicks of shine with a Silver Sharpie to make it look like its catching the moonlight.
