I Love Fall!

Good morning!  Jessica here sharing a card celebrating my favorite season of the year, fall!  I combined a bunch of my favorite fall-themed Lawn Fawn sets and did a little no-line watercoloring!
I stamped the fox from Into the Woods, the pumpkins from So Thankful, and the foliage from Blissful Botanicals onto watercolor paper with a second generation stamping of antique linen distress ink.  Using a second generation stamping provides a very faint line to help with watercoloring.  Next I scribbled various zig clean color real brush markers onto my acrylic block and watercolored the images with a #2 paintbrush.  After they dried completely I fussy cut each image and set them aside while I worked on the rest of the card.  

For the background I inked up the woodgrain stamp with perfect medium and stamped it onto kraft cardstock.  Then I sprinkled on a couple metallic shades of perfect pearls powder and swirled them onto the stamp with a soft brush before buffing them off with a swiffer cloth.  Finally to seal the perfect pearls I spritzed it with water and dried it with my heat gun.  I stamped the sentiment onto the card and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder.  Then I colored the heart with a red marker, went over it with clear wink of stella glitter, and applied a layer of glossy accents.  
Next I started assembling my card...I trimmed down the kraft cardstock and mounted it to a chocolate brown card base.  Then I added my watercolored images.  The foliage, fox, and large pumpkin were adhered with my ATG gun and the small pumpkin was adhered with foam mounting tape for a little added dimension.  I went over the pumpkins, the foliage, and the pinks of the fox's ears with clear wink of stella glitter, and finished the card with a handful of metallic gold sequins!
