IndigoBlu challenge 32 - Autumn Days

Here is my entry for the current IndigoBlu challenge, Autumn Days. It has been way too long since I wast posted on my poor neglected blog, but life just got in the way. Anyway, enough of that, back to my entry.

I used a 6" x 6" mdf purchased at a recent IndogoBlu open day as my base. After gessoing I adhered a sheet of gorgeous paper from the Belle Epoche paperstack. Mind you, once I had appled lashings of IndigoBlu paint in red, gold and copper, then layers of stencilling, it was all but impossible to see the lovely paper underneath. I edged the mdf with the lovely chocolate box mega flakes. Aren't these new stencils fabulous? I gentle brushed over the raised areas with gold paint to make them stand out even more.

I them stampled out the beautiful poppy image several times using black archival ink. I coloured these in with both red acrylic paints, then highlighted with spectrum noir pencils before fussy cutting the layers. I tipped the edged of the layers with the red pencil before building up my display using gel adhesive. Then I adhered it all to the plaque using the same glue.

I still feel ot needs something else but everything I have tried just doesn't look quite right, so I have left it as is.

I hope you like it and welcome your comments.
