Travis and his travelling boots.........................................

I chose to ignore the heatwave at the weekend with yesterdays rainy tag and todays autumnal one.

Todays stars Diane Reavelys Travelling Travis stomping across the rockys to see the maple leaves in their Autumnal glory. The leaves were stamped with vermillion archival onto glassine paper which I had coloured with alcohol inks and then fixed with a heatgun. Makes great curly leaves hey? and yes am excercising artistic licence when I call them maple leaves as I only had an ivy stamp.
{ NB. Heating alcohol inks is probably ILLEGAL and am sure Ranger dont advise it, so if you have a conflagration dont say I didn't warn you!} you could just use autumny colours of archivals splodged onto glassine then heated. Which is deffo safe as I saw Timmy do it.

 The background is kraft resist paper coloured with chalk inks and distress inks, then stamped with my new artistic stamper Large Dotty Open stamp in pine needles distress ink.
I coloured Travis's legs with watercolour pencils and glossy accented his wellys.

I am entering this tag into two challenges.

Tag it on dragonsdream these boots were made for walking.

Artistic stamper - use autumnal colours.

Amazing how Mondays improve with a bit of a splodge, eh?.x
