I was trying to get to sleep the other night when I got the idea for this card. I'm not quite crazy enough to get up and make it right when I got the idea, but I did finally make it today when I couldn't get into the scrapbooking groove. No idea why I'm making an autumn-themed card...my DH says I'm thinking of my friend's daughter whose name is Autumn. Good answer; I think I'll send the card to her.
I did the Leaves Awash wheel in Ruby Red, then watercolored it with Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, and a little Ruby Red before I sponged Garden Green over it. The vanilla seemed to stark before I did the green on it. I did the background by loading up my Aquapainter with a lot of Ruby Red ink from an ink refill, then squeezing out some extra water on the tip before tapping it against my fingers to make it splat. Recommend covering your workspace with newspaper before trying this at home :)
