Autumn Blessings

Man, oh man, do I love coloring fall scenes. This is a new slapstick stamp from Penny Black called "Autumnal Gifts". I think the foam cling are my new fav type of stamps.
I colored this last weekend. Usually when I am posting I do it right away and just leave everything laying out on my desk. Yep... I am one of! I am a firm believer in the organized mess philosophy. But believe it or not, I completely put everything away between each card. 
So, here's my list of Copics (and I hope it's mostly right)
Wheat: E31, E33 and touches of YG91
Bow: B24
Apples: R27, R24 and Y13
Basket: E31, E33, E37 and R02
Pumpkins: YR09, YR07, YR04 and YR65 
Corn: YR18, Y17, Y13
Grapes: V09, V01 and B00
Greenery: Varied them but used shades of YG11, YG03, YG67, YG99, Y11

The background was backlit with BG10 close to the image and then distressed with Tim Holtz "Broken China". The background paper was distressed with TH "Fired Brick".
