613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes

Welcome to another month from 613 Avenue Create - this month we are all about the Anything Goes with no twist.  

I have some new stamps from Tracy Evans - a designer here in the UK and this one is from a stamp set called Foliage.  Just perfect for the Autumn days we now have - I love collage sets so was delighted to find Tracy's range of stamps.  

My background was made with a stencil.  I had used the stencil with some acrylic paint on another background and just stamped off what was left on the stencil.  This left a very light covering of the leaves and was just perfect for a soft background.  See, nothing is wasted in crafting.

I stamped the larger image from the stamp set directly on top of the background allowing the background to show through onto the stamps.  I picked out areas of the stamp to colour in and highlight.   I added some extra bits of stamping from the stamp around the edges just using my fingers to press it down rather than a block.  I double stamped the leaf and added it with some dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the same set and popped on dimensionals.  I used a Stabilo All pencil around the edges and softened it with an aqua brush.
