Wednesday Stamper - Autumn Colours

This week the Wednesday Stamper theme is "Autumn Colours". I decided to go with the usual autumn leaf theme so I have used a shipping tag with a few different chalk inks to stamp a favourite Hero Arts leaf image and some text and then sponged the tag with the same inks. I really love the way they blend. The tag is then coated with melted beeswax. The woman is stamped on tissue paper and then ironed into the beeswax using a mini Clover iron stamp. I also added some partial swirl images to frame the top of the tag.

Autumnal colours, beautiful - my favourites. The beeswax and tissue paper technique sounds very exciting - I shall have to find out more about this one.
