Autumn Colours at Allsorts

Good morning. Whoooopp whooooppp it's the weekend and it's also half-term for Jack :o)
We have no specific plans other than a trip up North to visit my MiL at the end of the week but it will be lovely to spend some quality time together.

So as it's Saturday that means we have a new challenge for you over at 


and this week our lovely Helene has picked the theme


Here's what I did:
 I had another play with my new PanPastels and created a background using the following colours:
Burnt Sienna, Permanent Red and Yellow Ochre
I love them - they blend so beautifully.
 I over stamped the gorgeous Sheena Douglass 'A Little Bit Scenic' - Silhoutte Grasses image and sentiment
using Walnut Stain Distress Ink
 Memory Box Dragonflies - embossed with Frantage Aged Cooper & Aged Silver - scrummy :o)
Simple mat and layering onto co-ordinating card stock and then onto Craftwork Cards scalloped base card - coloured with PanPastels.

Hope you can find some time to join in the fun with us this week.

Beautiful Card Debs, one of my DT members produced a tutorial this month on the challenge blog showing this stamping technique. I really must have a play myself because it's something that I haven't tried yet.

Thank you so much for joining us over on The Cupboard Trilogy challenge blog ... Good luck & hope to see you next time
