Back in the "olden days" I belonged to a group of lovely ladies who gathered once a month to make cards together.  Now that we haven't seen each other for months, one of our members suggested that each month we follow a theme and make a card for each of our friends (6 cards).  This month the theme is "fall/thanksgiving".

My production line began with an 8.5x11 piece of white cardstock on which I randomly blended DO inks in oranges, yellows, greens and browns.  Then I spattered the piece with water and next with gold metallic paint.  Die cut a bunch of leaves and used some walnut stain DO ink to smudge the edges of all the leaves.  Stamped my card base with a retired Hero Arts flourish cover stamp - also did the tag - MISTI used for this stamping - fast and easy!  Thought the swirl design of the stamp went so well with falling leaves.  Arranged the leaves, added the sentiment, a few gold sequins and done.  After I had the first card finished, assembling the other five cards went quickly.  

Thanks for dropping by today.
