One Last Fall Card

Here is one last fall card for the year. I love watercoloring with this set and I wanted to use it one last time before it goes up high on the shelf. I chose rich colors highlighted with black to express the coziness I feel coming into hot cider on a crisp fall day.

--The stamp sets I used are "Give Thanks" and "Double-Line Doodles". ("Double-Line Doodles" will not be available until July 2007)
--The papers are: Watercolor Paper, Basic Black, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, and Rose Red. I stamped the apple bucket image with StazOn Black and I watercolored the image with Rose Red, Close to Cocoa, Garden Green, and So Safron.
--The bucket was colored with a grey watercolor crayon and painted with an AquaPainter.
--I did some doodling around the image with a Stampin' Write Journaler (the fine point end). --The Rose Red square was stamped and sponged with Rose Red ink (I love this look--one of the many wonderful aspects of coordinated inks and papers).
--The Always Artichoke base card is also sponged with Always Artichoke craft ink. The main image is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to "pop" it off the card.
