Just Autumn



Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that mans a new challenge at Allsorts where Tracy has chosen the theme of 'Autumn', our lovely sponsors are Digistamp and Craft Fairy.


I have to say that making Autumnal cards has to be one of my favorite passtimes as I love the warm colours so I have made two cards using the same stamps, just slightly different designs. Both the leaf and treescape stamps are from Clarity and the little scene has been created using Pan Pastels and in both cases masking to create the oval and borders.


There's not much more to add really, I know lots of people find these single layer masked cards daunting but truth is they are really quick and easy to make, so if you are one of those reluctant people do give it a go. I did this technique in a class recently and several of the girls shared that reluctant but each and every one created a stunner and went away itching to make more. If you need any words of encouragement or help, just mail me.

Happy weekend all.

    (Sad to say BR's masking technique is not so good - faults and short comings laid bare for all to see......am keeping the faith but am soooo frustrated!) xx
