Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge for October - Nature

Do pop over to Happy Little Stampers to see the fabulous inspiration for this Challenge!

Here's mine - a tiny canvas:

You may remember me blogging in June about these pictures my daughter and I made:

We used die cut trees and melted wax crayons to give the autumnal leaves effect. The frames are some of our burnt wood ones.

This time I wanted to use Color Burst Powders and water to give an autumnal feel.

As I was using water, I wanted to stamp my trees 
(from SU's Lovely as a Tree - one of my favourite stamp sets!)
with a waterproof ink - so using watercolour paper I tried Stazon and Versafine.

I preferred the blackness of the Stazon.

I then sprinkled with a few Colour Burst colours on the dry paper and spritzed with water.

For the ground I mixed some colour with water to use as a paint.

I then moved on to my tiny canvas and a small rectangle of MDF.

I was really quite pleased with the result...

At the beginning of the month Sketch~N~Scrap celebrated
World Card Making Day on facebook with three challenges.

They will be celebrating World Card Making all MONTH on their blog!!

I used one of the above trials for Challenge #2.

CHALLENGE NUMBER TWO; Using the sketch create a card and make sure you have - at least one circle, at least three of the same embellishment (stars, hearts, flowers, leaves, etc) and one banner.

Happy Crafting!


  1. The canvases look great.
    I just tried the Color Burst and love it.
    I was trying to color on regular paper that
    had gesso applies so
    it didn't work as well but I'll get the
    watercolor paper out the next time.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. These look awesome! I love the colors.

  3. These all are so pretty to look at thanks for sharing

  4. What a fabulous technique Susan and those vibrant colours are amazing!
