Falling behind and Falling Leaves

 I have lost track of time, I guess. I can't believe it has been so long since I posted last!
I had a chance to play on Friday and was able to create these seasonal one layer cards. I have shied away from this technique for ever, because it looks really is so simple!!! If you have been thinking of trying this please DO IT!!! You will not be disappointed.
Paper: Whisper White(100730)

Inks: Old Olive(126953), Lucky Limeade(126984), Daffodil Delight (126944) and Always Artichoke (126972)

Stamp Sets: Gently Falling(w-123802 or c-123804), Perfectly Penned (w-122890 or c-122892)
Inks: More Mustard(126964), Old Olive(126953), Tangerine Tango (126946), Cajun Craze (126965), and Early Espresso (126974)

Stamp Sets: French Foliagew-120845 or c-121166), Gently Falling (w-123802 or c-123804) and Curly Cute(w-117014 or c-120510)

Accessories: Sponge Daubers(102892), Post-it notes

Technique: I tore the sticky edge of several Post-it notes and stuck them to the cardstock to create a mask then applied ink straight from the ink pads with the sponge daubers continuing to add colors and blend until I was happy with the look. Then, with the mask still in place I stamped over the area.I used the sae mask for both cards as well!

Thanks for coming by!
