I love this image.  Winifred just screams color me with Copics.  I used a paper pad from Paper House for the coordinating layers of card stock.  I matted it with coordinating purple card stock.  I added enamel dots that I found at the Dollar Tree to top off the card.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set that I found at a yard sale for $1.

Fall is Heree Card Recipe

These leaves from Concord and 9th have been sitting in my new stuff basket for a while now.  Well it's finally time for a fall project so I broke this pretty little stamp out of its package and pulled down the Tombow Markers.  I put the stamp in my MISTI and spritzed some water on some watercolor paper.  I colored the stamp with Red, Orange, Yellow and Green topping it off with Brown on the stems.  I stamped the image.  It was a little more wet than I liked so I flipped the paper and stamped the other side of the card stock.  Not enough color or water.  I flipped it back and colored the stamp and stamped the image 3 more times.  I flicked some of the colors on the background too.  I just love splatter.  The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn and the pattern paper is from Echo Park.
