Inkspirational Autumn

Hi! Thanks so much to Inkspirational Challenges for inviting me to be a guest designer - such an honour, and so lovely to be asked! Here's the inspirational photo for the challenge:


There are lots of elements here to inspire, but I really love the colours and the trees. Here's what I came up with. I used ink dusters over a stencil to create the trees, and then added a bit of detail to the trees with a fine black marker. I stamped the leaves and wild grasses in yellow and orange, stamping twice to get different depths of colour. I added some Stickles to the leaves and grasses, and then added the punched butterflies and the sentiment.





Thanks for stopping by  :)

I think you captured the essence of the inspirational picture perfectly, and have created a beautiful, serene scene. The stencilled trees look so perfect- you were brave to finish them off with the black pen (I would be sure to go wrong!), yet this really adds definition. You are right that your stamping techniques add real depth to the leaves. What a beauty! Thank you so much for being our wonderful Guest Designer at Inkspirational.

Wow, I thought the trees were die cuts. Such a clever way to create them and adding the details makes them look so realistic. We are so pleased you joined us as our GD for this challenge x

Jen, WOW, WOW and WOW! Your translation of the picture is stunning, rich with beautiful details that have me in breath-taken-away awe! The scene itself is lovely, but the addition of the sparkle to the leaves, the lines to the trees and, of course, the butterflies, enhances the impact immensely! Gorgeous! Thank you so much for joining us as a guest designer! Your creativity is such a gift!
