Autumn Leaves

Really should have called this, cock up on the gelli plate! As I had this wonderful idea that I could impress real leaves into the paint and print from them. Wrong. They slipped about and were very unsatisfactory.

Anyway....step one was spreading neutral fresco colours onto my background with a credit card.
Step Two, Little round gel plate and real leaves...disaster!
Step Three, rescue by printing with Lin Browns new stamps, ELB29 with fresco paints and archival inks.

This is the A4 rescued sheet.
Step Four, cut it up into four pieces.
Step Five, a little extra stamping of leaves to frame them and a sentiment.
Mounted onto cards and breathe!
If nothing else, this is a good lesson in perseverance and not filling the waste bin!
I am happy to enter my four cards into the PA challenge, Autumn Leaves.


  1. Well your 'cockup' turned out impressively beautiful Hazel! I absolutely love the colours and Lin's new stamps are my current favourites. Gorgeous entry to the challenge.

  2. Never mind... why bother with real leaves when LB designed these beauties for us to use! Love your autumnal masterboard and how you've finished the cards.

  3. Brilliant save! Absolutely gorgeous!
