Definately feeling like fall with this one!! Head over to the Digi Doodle Shops Best challenge today and you can pick this image or your choice of two others to participate in their challenge this week. 
I colored this with Copics but did kind of a watercolor effect. Instead of blending I just layed down color in random places with little squiggly lines and continued to build in various colors.
The colors I used were:
Fall Leaves: YR65, YR04, E31, Y11
Acorns: E31, E33, E37 and R02
Sky: BG10 and BG72

The background paper is Semi Gloss photo paper with an Alcohol Ink background. You can see my tutorial on how to do that here .
To finish it off I added a few jewels, some lace and gave it a pop of gold glitter spray.
Now off to enjoy some BBQ and relax!
Thanks for looking!
Additional Challenges (what a busy little card!! I adore an open challenge.. most of these were "fall" themed. Got to love that!!)
