IT'S AUTUMN TIME AT ADDICTED TO CAS !

Happy weekend lovely Bloggers!  
I am the Hostess for this fortnight's challenge at Addicted to Clean and Simple, and the Code Word I have chosen for you is 
 Autumn/Fall.  
  
Our generous Sponsor is The Paper Nest Dolls - the prize for our CAS Perfectionist is a $25 Gift Voucher to spend in their online 
Digi store. 
To qualify, your entry must be Clean and Simple.


I have two cards to share with you - the first is an adorable
Paper Nest Dolls image - Pumpkin Patch Emma, coloured with Copics set in a Nestie square frame. Sky sponged with SU Soft Sky ink and
a torn paper template.  
(sorry about the blue hue - the card is white IRL - any advice would be appreciated)!!


My second card is a DL size, very simple design using my
favourite Cuttlebug leaf dies.
Coloured with various Distress Inks, spritzed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist (as is the background).  The gold shimmer does not show up on the picture though!



Can't wait to see your amazing creations - don't forget to leave plenty of "white space"!

Happy Crafting ~

Two fabulous cards, Sylvia! I love them both! re the blue hue, I downloaded picassa and the auto colour button on that generally does the trick. If not there is another tab which is purely brightness and colour hue based. Hope this is useful x

Martha said...

Viv's Visuals said...

Hi Sylvia! have to say the first card is such a cutie.. but I simply adore the second! Have tried a pale pink Belleek style which I think is better than the first wintry themed one - promise to give you the credit when I blog the pink one - cos without you I wouldn't have tried the technique!! xx

Harriet Skelly said...

Both cards are wonderful and I especially love the second card - I like the length and thoe beautiful leaves!
