TSG Autumn Mosaics Blog Hop!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Welcome to the second blog hop for the October There She Goes releases!

Today the Trendsetters are showcasing the beautifully serene set, Autumn Mosaics!! If you've hopped here from Piali's gorgeous blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to play along with us, just hop on back to the TSG blog and start your ride there. Remember, you could win this fabulous set just by hopping with us today!

Autumn Mosaics is another stunning set designed by the incredibly talented Chris Dark. This set has all the things I love about autumn - from baskets filled with apples to big maple trees that (when colored) glow in the afternoon sun. I feel very fortunate that I get to experience this season in all it's glory living in New Hampshire!

Autumn Mosaic is a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 21 stamps and will sell for $18.


For this card I really wanted to create a very soft, traditional watercolored scene, so I used more water on my brush than usual. Then I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink to age the image, matted with some Kraft and Bitter Chocolate Bazzil cardstock and machine stitched them together. The patterned paper is from MME and it's something I've had forever now. I sponged the edges with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, machine stitched them to some pumpkin-colored Bazzil cardstock and adhered it to a Bitter Chocolate base. I wrapped the image with some beautiful wrinkled silk ribbon and kept the rest of it simple.


Congratulations! You've made it to the end of this hop!
