Bushel of Autumn Fun

Wow, another scorcher here today!! Looks like Earl will bring us some rainy relief on Friday and then we should have a gorgeous weekend, sunny and highs in the 70s. A beautiful way to kick off September (once we get through this heat first!).

I wanted to share a card that I had an awful lot of fun making today. This was for today's sketch challenge, SC296, on Splitcoast. What a fun layout! That bushel of autumn leaves was colored using the Gamsol Magic technique, with colored pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits and a paper blending stump. It's been a while since I've been able to color this way, and I really enjoyed myself. This is another sneak peek of the soon-to-be-released Mark's Finest Papers set, Autumn Fun.

My Bushel of Autumn Fun card is also for these challenges:
Thanks so much for taking a peek at my card today!!

Supplies:
Stamps: MFP Autumn Fun
Paper: SU pumpkin pie CS, various unknown DP from my scraps
Ink: Palette burnt umber
Accessories: SU scallop trim border punch, brown satin ribbon, brads, foam tape, sponge
Techniques: Gamsol Magic, sponging
