Touch of Fall

Good Morning! 
We had absolutely glorious weather here yesterday, so I decided to take advantage of it.  I grabbed the dog and my son and hit the local parks and trails to do a little geocaching.  We had a wonderful time enjoying the cool temps and trying to discover treasure.  On the flipside, that means I came home to a messy house, so today I have to "put my nose to the grind" as the very old saying goes, and get some things done. 
But, before washing dishes, scrubbing floors and doing laundry, I just had to get out the ink and paper and play along in today's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS.  Today's featured stamper is SLWhite and she has a gallery full of fun, colorful and beautifully colored cards, all with a touch of playfulness and whimsy.  I used one of the new stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps from the Seasonal Wreaths set~

I  started out with my current favorite acrylic paint, DecorArt Dazzling Metallics Splendid Gold, and painted a piece of white cs.  Once dry, I stamped on the image in Versamark and then embossed with gold ep. I colored the leaves and the bow with Copics, which, when used on the paint, have a lovely soft, transparent look.  The bow was stamped twice so it could be popped up with dimensionals.  I kept the card simple so that the wreath was the focal point.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a blessed week!
