A couple people have asked me about digital stamps so I thought I would post a link to some easy instructions that might help you understand what to do with them.

I did three cards. I used the versions of masking techniques I found at this link:

http://melissascreations.blogspot.ca/2012/09/and-still-...

I think they turned out pretty neat and were really very easy once I got the hang of it.

This first one is my submission for the bonus category: Fall (although it is the most like the original inspiration - card four on her page). The color of the masked area is much more like the original IRL... not such a bright orange.

The next two are for favorites (from the same link - cards one and two on her page respectively):
