Last hint of Autumn



Time for our monthly challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More where our themes are 'Simply Christmas' and 'Anything Goes'.

For my Penny Black and More piece I have masked a panel on a piece of Centura Pearl (reverse side) and also a masked sun, shaded with Pan Pastels and stamped Penny Black 3937H Birds on a wire, 3940F Life and 3948 Fireworks and simply matted and layered onto coordinating Bazzil added some Swarovski crystals and added a bow down the spine. You will find all the stamps listed above and below on Penny Blacks website here, where you can sign up to their free club and follow them on Facebook.


I have used a mixture of stamps on my Stamping Sensations card, Art Impression, Lavinia and Penny Black, all stamped in black archival and the background created with a mixture of inks and Pan Pastrels. I cut the frame on the Cricut, embossed and them rubber with gilding wax and finally a few red berries using stickles.

And just the one more as I wanted to use this new Penny Black stamp while there are still hints of Autumn about. At the same time I tried out the new Pebeo drawing gum which I am so pleased to say works a treat creating a mask to use with Dylusions and wet sprays and no seeping under the mask as with paper and sticky film masking sheets....result at long last !


I heat embossed the tree from Penny Black called A Day in Autumn 40-359 with detail copper, stamped some of the branches again across the bottom, distressed and embossed the edges. The words are single words taken from a couple of Penny Black sentiment sets 30-140 Christmas Cheer and 30-229 Special Wishes and the stenciling in the background is Penny Black Verdana 25-003.

Lots of lovely prizes t be won at both challenges so I really hope you will join in.

  9. Wow, wow, wow, Brenda! Three totally stunning makes! I love them all! The colours on the first are so beautiful, The second is such a wonderful scene, set off perfectly with that gorgeous frame, and the third is such a wonderful blend of colours and textures! Couldn't choose a favourite if I tried! Never thought of using masking fluid with my dylusions. Must try it, and brushing them too!

  12. Wow Brenda, three more fabulous cards. Love them all but especially the one with the stag gazing into the picture. I'm in awe at how you keep everything so clean when using pan pastels, I end up with finger prints everywhere! I'm interested in what the masking stuff is?
