Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #221 and SUO Challenge 28, Fall Colors

                                                           

Here a Sketch Challenge #221 over at Stamping 411. My first time joining in on the fun.
I'm also joining in on the SUO Challenge 28. This is also my first time joining the challenge at this site. Hope this is ok to post 1 card for 2 different places.


I love the fall season so here is a card I made using the French Foliage stamp set again. I did the Faux Tearing Technique for the background. I tore a piece of scrap paper, put on the white card stock and then stamp away. I sponge the edges before I take the paper off. This technique makes nice background paper to match the colours you need for your creations.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!

I love this collage look on the left with the clean look on the right. Very different! And it "pears" great together with the main image - heehee! :) Thanks for playing with us at SUO Challenges.
