Celebrating fall

Back with another fall card, just because I love fall.  For the center image on this card, I colored the stamp with a variety of fall-colored markers, right on the stamp, lightly spritzed and stamped it on watercolor paper. If you apply a fair amount of water, you get a really soft, watercolored look. I barely got this stamp wet, and since the lines are so fine anyway, I got just a slight mingling of the colors and a slight broadening of the outline. 

The sketch is Freshly Made Sketch #105.

The image stamp is by Stampcraft. Sentiment is from Mark's Finest Paper, stamped in either Creamy Caramel or Sepia (had both on my desk, and I'm not sure which one I used). The paper is Paprika from The Paper Company. It sounds kind of silly, but it's by far my favorite shade of orange.

I'm entering the card in these challenges:
