Guest Post - Autumn Colours by Gerrina Poncin

Today is the third of Gerrina's project and this week she has given us a beautiful touch of Autumn. Here first card uses Autumn Edges, whilst her second features the ever popular Nature Table. Enjoy.

I am back with some work I made for my last Guest Designer team post this month. Of course I could not resist to make some cards with the beautiful autumn stamps, now Autumn is slowly getting closer:  Here is the first

Start by stamping the mushrooms and masking them. Then some more masking so you have only that piece from the card that you want to sponge. Start sponging on the bottom and work your way up with the colours of your choice. I used five colours. Remove the mask from the mushrooms and colour them with a waterpencil and Distress Inks.

On this one I stamped the big chestnuts, masked them and stamped the little ones and masked them also. I love backgrounds, so I used one of the beautiful fragments from the Lace Fragments set. On top of that background I stamped the branches with the skeleton leaves. All what is left to do next is remove the masks and colour it all.

In a few months you can see more work that I made at the Chocolate Baroque blog! In the meanwhile I am sure you will come across more of their stamps on my work...
Thanks for looking!                         


A huge thank from us Gerrina for giving us three such diverse and interesting projects, we look forward to seeing you here again in a few months times.  And of course you can see more of her work on her blog.

Don't forget to drop by tomorrow when there will be a fabulous project from one of our Design Team using the new October stamps.
