August is here....Autumn can't be too far away!

I LOVE Autumn! It is my favorite season. I spend a lot of the time up at the cabin and it is so pretty up there. I also love all the fall festivals and the foods we eat during autumn.

This card was made with two of the new images from Serendipity Stamps. The leaf image works great as a background and as the focal point. I used the Copic markers not only to color the image, but also to do some airbrushing around the image. By changing the tips you use on the sketch markers, you can get the fine coverage (chisel tip) or a more "spattered" look (brush tip). I love to do spattering with watercolor, so it makes me happy that I can carry that look over with the Copics.

Spellbinders nestabilities were used to cut out and to mat the image.
