Cut a 8 X 10 piece of river rock

Stamp leaves from lovely as a tree all over Pumpkin pie card stock to create texture and add sentiment at the top

Using C0luzzle Cut a circle with the wild wasabi and then a smaller circle with very vanilla Follow instructions for masking

I used the masking technique to put the pumpkin in front of the others. It is such a simple technique and works so effectively. If you have never done this technique I will explain it.
Masking is relatively very simple. You stamp your main image on your card and then you take a post it note and stamp that same imagine again close to the sticky edge of the note. You take your scissors and cut the figure out right on the line. If you don't cut it on the line you will experience"shadows", which are also known as a "halo" when you use it. Once it is cut out, put the post-it note mask on top of the figure already stamped on your card. Then you can stamp around and on top of the post it note mask. Lift the mask and you suddenly have a scene that looks like it is all one stamp.

Color in pumpkins using the watercolor crayon and the aqua painter. Assemble scrapbook page.
