Wow! What a cool inspiration site! I picked several, but I'll admit, I totally cheated on this one. I had this card from yesterday and this Octoberama poster just really reminded me of it. I'm also adding this to the FC Gallery as this image is based on Fall in New England.
For my card, I floated in the various colors of dye reinkers using a fairly large paintbrush. After it dried, I stamped the image with permanent black ink. I stamped the image a second time on a piece of card board. I cut both out, leaving a very narrow frame around the top and sides and glued them together. After sponging a little red ink on the edges of a piece of marigold card stock, I attached the cut out image to it. I added a narrow black layer and a textured mustard one before attaching everything to a 5.5 x 4.25 white card. The sentiment was stamped on top of a scrap of the watercolored paper and cut out.
Except for all the really fussy cut work, this is an easy card. I love doing the backgrounds first and then stamping on them. It's always kind of a surprise where the colors end up.

We both picked the same poster. Wasn't it a great one. Your leaves are much more realistic and vibrant than mine.
It looks like it took a lot of time but sure worth the effort.
