Yeah, I know spring has yet to arrive for most of us!!
Make it Crafty's challenge is
Now I splurged this week on a couple of new Magnolia stamps and one in particular sums up
the phrase "make it crafty" - what do you think??
When I think of autumn, I envisage trees a glow with vivid russets, reds and yellows, a crispness in the air and mushrooms popping up all over my lawn (grrrr - if any budding gardeners out there know how to get rid of unwanted fungi please let me know)

Magnolia stamp- Tilda stamping
Flat backed pearls
No Copics list today - (sorry, I developed a migraine shortly after doing this and in my marshmallow-head daze after it had gone I put my pens back without taking a picture)
Did you know.........
Digi's come into their own because of their versatility - resize, invert and as in this case create your own backing paper. The "mushroom montage" was created in Photoshop Elements, adding and resizing fungi until it filled my design area, then I reduced their transparency to 50%, pale enough to be subtle but not so wishy washy that they disappeared. I chose really pale muted shades to colour them in - E40, E50 and some pale W's - just enough to give a hint of colour.
Try it for yourself and I'd love to hear how you get on.
Feel free to hop on over to the Make it Crafty Gallery where you can see some awesome autumnal projects from my teamies to inspire you - and then have a go yourself - I can't wait to see what you create.
