Here's my card:

 For this card I used my newest favorite coloring medium, Nuance from Magenta. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper, and I masked off a rectangular area in the center of the panel. I did not press it down hard, because I wanted the colors to bleed into the rectangle a little. I chose some Fall colors of Nuance, and tapped the powder into a palette. I added pearly water (1/4 tsp Perfect Pearls Pearl in 2 oz water) to each color, and painted them around the masked area. Then, using the Magenta Maple Leaf 1 stamp (665.K) I stamped all around the rectangle using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

I removed the mask, and stamped the Magenta Fall Text stamp into the middle of the rectangle with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. Last I took some of the leftover Nuance from my palette, and flicked it into the center of the rectangle.

I mounted the panel onto copper Stardream paper as a mat, and then onto a white base card. In spite of the recent hot weather where I live, this card really makes me feel like Fall!
