This month's inspiration is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles. Think warm & cozy woolens, houndstooth, tweed, burlap, felt, corduroy. herringbone and even argyle. You can create your own custom patterns & textures with stamps or impression plates. Or you can incorporate actual fabrics, felt, yarn and other textiles in a creative way
My take. I used my new Herringbone stamp. I am not going to lie, I had trouble with it. I cleaned it, re-positioned it on the block, I had trouble. I finally got my brayer out and that helped a LOT! My 4 1/2x5 1/2" white card stock base had the front embossed with the Herringbone Impression Plate. I took a 4x3" piece of white card stock and stamped the Herringbone with Fine Linen (my fave!) I adhered it to the top of the card front. Tag Sale #5 that was also embossed with the Impression Plate was added. I used Enchanted Evening to cut the Filigree Border die and Bloom Builders #3 Die. The bloom was threaded with a Dark Chocolate button. A strip of that card stock was also adhered to the bottom of the herringbone piece. A Vintage Cream Christmas Label Die was stamped with Enchanted Evening ink. Finally to add more texture and incorporate some felt I took my standard size hole punch and cut some Dark Chocolate felt to add to the centers of the Filigrees. It cut pretty well I did have to trim off some fuzz as the punch isn't all that sharp.
LOTS of texture! Pretty fall colors ~ Fall cannot get here soon enough!
