Crafts & Me #13 - Easels

Challenge time again at Crafts & Me and this fortnight its my turn to host and I've chosen the ever popular theme of EASELS. 

The weather has turned decidedly autumnal the past couple of days, I'm freeeeezing!  With that in mind I picked up the ching chou kuik stamp 'Autumn Harvest' which I got from Crafts and Me here and set to work!  I notced the little grapes in the corner and I've been waiting for a chance to use the scrummy papers by Bo Bunny I bought a while ago and put away to stroke sometimes but no I must be brave and USE them ha!  One of the set is printed with grapes so was perfect for this image.

I've coloured with promarkers and added glamour dust detail to the hem line and wings.  Now to give Sarah a giggle yes I coloured each individual grape in 2 colours, added a dot of white souffle pen AND glazed them :P  The pumpkins are also glazed.  As the original painting has flowers in the background but the stamp does not  thought I'd drag out my tapestry stamps and added some flubbers in the background by masking off the image then finally added wild honey distress ink (yum yum yummy colour!)  The big purple flowers were white (I bought a bulk load from wild orchid in white) and I dyed them with adrondack color wash (wild plum and a touch of aubergine)  Swirl came with the Bo Bunny set.

Phew right, I'd also like to enter into...

Hello Vix, I have been a bad blogger, and not visited in a while. I have to say though that I love this card. I love the gold blobbies, and the colouring, you really are a marvel at card making.
