Autumn Colours

I think I've decided that autumn is perhaps my fav season. Being here in the Southern Hemisphere means while the rest of my blogging friends are madly blogging their Spring creations, I'm inspired by the stunning autumn leaves.
Here are my one layer ( I know 1 layer moi??? lol) autumn inspired trio of cards, I'm really pleased how they've turned out.

I masked off an area on the card, then embossed with copper embossing powder, I then sponged and inked the masked area and added a sentiment.
sorry the quality of the photos is poor, but that's the thing about autumn, shorter days :-)

I made these cards with the last Gingersnap Creations challenge in mind, which of course is a Copper Rust Colour challenge. I'm sad that Gingersnap challenges are finishing as I've found them so inspiring, when I started crafting seriously 2 years ago, I used to look and dream that one day I might be good enough to be a Ginger Gem. And I'm blessed to have been picked many times and also a Guest Designer last year. I'll miss you guys!!!

Love Debi x
