Autumnal Stamping with Barry M Gelly

I bought this stamping plate some time ago, but was waiting to use it because it seems really autumnal to me! It's MoYou London Mother Nature 09, which you can see in full here.  I really love the ears of corn and wheat design.


I started with a base of Barry M Truffle, from the Silks collection. I then stamped using a variety of the new Autumn Gelly colours Mustard, Paprika and Cocoa. 


This didn't turn out quite how I'd hoped, although I do really like how the thumbnail looks!


The middle finger especially came out messier and less distinct than I wanted. 


I do really like how good the Gelly range is for stamping though. They're thick and highly pigmented and carry a design really well. 
I'll have to try using this plate again another time and see if I can get the end result more how it was in my head. In the meantime, I quite like bits of this...

    1. Thank you!

      I'm always WAY too hot, so I love autumn because I can start to wear normal clothes without sweating and feeling like a giant tomato.

      And wow! I haven't heard anyone mention a harvest festival in maybe 30 years! Do they still exist? That's nice to know...
