Craft a Scene Fall Splendor - Final Week

Well here we go with the last week of our Fall Splendor challenge and I have so much to share with you.  

We have a couple of very fall looking email entries:

Margaret - Yorkshire

Here’s a card I made, which I hope captures the Autumn Splendour theme, which I have also entered into Clarity’s Challenge, where the theme was Nature.  I created the background using Adirondack inks and torn paper to create the hills and then stamped the images, which are all Clarity stamps, using Versafine inks in matching colours.

The tree and the hedge are from a set called Winter trees and their Mantles, and the tree is made using two stamps, firstly the black bare tree was stamped and then the mantle was stamped over the top of the bare branches, using two different colours.  The Birch leaves along the bottom are just a small spray of leaves.  I thought they looked as though they had fallen from the tree.  Hope you agree.

We also have three lovely scenes from the talented Craft a Scene design team for your inspiration.  



Okay, so this week is your last chance to make a scene that shows off the colors of fall. You may enter up to 3 times and as many other challenges as you wish. If you do not have a blog or account on Split Coast Stampers, then just email me a picture of the piece and I will add it to one of our posts.

Have fun creating!

Craft a Scene Animal Challenge - Final Week

Well it's the last weekend of the summer and of our challenge.  We are keeping it simple this month and all you have to do is add a four-legged animal to your wonderful scene.

I've got a couple of email entries too this week from our friends in England.

MargaretI have had these stamps from Docrafts Papermania for quite a while and I think I have only used them once before, so I thought I would create a mystical fairy theme with some of the stamps.  I stamped the castle and coloured it in with Promarkers.  Then I cut out a mask of the castle and used it to cover up the image whilst I created the background, using a brayer and adirondak inks.  The large unicorn was stamped, coloured with Promarkers, then cut out and attached with 3D glue dots.  For the final touch I added a fey tiny unicorns and some stars, and added some glitter.


Dawn - This time, I've used all Lavinia Stamps so I've also entered this card into their challenge, which is "Add some glitter".  Like you, they accept email entries too, which is great because I still haven't plucked up the courage to start my own blog!
