Celebrate Fall

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm feeling nostalgic for New York in the Fall. What a great time to enjoy the cooler weather and the gorgeous colors. I remember the briskness in the air, the expectation of fun times ahead, the family gathering around the Thanksgiving table, maybe some snow and that Christmas was just around the corner.  Meanwhile, here in my tropical paradise we are enduring yet another heatwave. Can't wait for cooler temperatures.

For today's card I played around with Smackin' Acetate technique and water color markers. Its the first time I try it. This is a fun and easy technique to make lovely backgrounds.  After letting it dry I stamped the leaves and heat embossed it with JudiKins Metallic Copper embossing powder.

I'm entering this card in this week's Mod Squad Challenge hosted by Barbara Campbell. Here are the supplies I used:

Cardstock: Gina K. Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus, Ivory (from my stash), Spectrum Aqua Watercolour Cardstock
Spectrum Aqua markers Bud Green, Marigold, Sunflower, Gold, Aquamarine
Spectrum Noir markers GB3, GB5, OR1
Stamps:  Gina K. Autumn Leaves, Celebrate the Season
JudiKins Metallic Copper embossing powder
Inks: Versamark, Memento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink
Gina K. wood embellishment, ribbon and twine

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by. 

Hugs & Blessings
