It's Katie here with another design team post for the blog.
I have a mixed media layout to share using the A Little Bit Washi stamp set, it's one of my favourites so I've had a good play with them. The theme of this month is exploring our backyard which over the summer had a few little visitors. I went into the shed to find a robin's nest wedged onto one of the shelves so I snapped a few pictures as it is wonderful to be so close to nature.
I love this stamp set because not only does it produce clean images that will stick to anything, The textures are brilliant and are versatile enough to use on any project.
For the base I used the Color Bust 12 x 12 sheet by Susan K Weckesser and I used a layer of texture paste before spritzing the background with Inks In A Bottle Brazil Nut, Pumpkin and French Lavender to get an Earthy colour, I then took the Doodle Stencil and used white texture paste to create a few rows of flowers. I added some to the layers as well
I loved stamping over this canvas bunting by Prima which the Susan K Weckesser stamps work well with. Again I stuck with Earthy Autumn colours and used Colour Chemistry ink pads Spring Green, Golden Yellow and Fire Brick. I then threaded twine through the bunting and glued it all down.
For the flower I used plain cream card and stamped over the petals using the A Little Bit Washi stamp set and then I coloured in the circles with gold accents.
I called him grumpy chick after a friend pointed out his moody little face.
The stitching pattern is from the Grunge Fun stamp set which i stamped across the page along side the A Little Bit Washi stamps.
