Autumn is almost here.....

Hello everyone: I feel like I'm in a roll, making cards almost every day for all of this different challenges and I'm having a ball!!!!!  This new adventure has given me the chance to expand my card making abilities to include CAS cards, which I just recently started learning how to do.
Today I will share with you a card I made for the Addicted to CAS  challenge, the theme is ''LEAVES" which suits me just great since Autumn is my absolute favorite season of the year.
Here is my card.
I stamped this images with a very old SU set called "Gently Falling", I think it was released back in 2011, but correct me if I'm wrong.  I love this leaves, their uneven edges give them a rustic look I really like. This is a two step stamp set but I just used the outlined images.  I stamped them with Stazon Jet Black ink onto Canson water color paper and then gave them a wash with my SU markers in Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  I wet the paper really good so the ink could just run and blend, then I heat dried it to be able to apply some color to the outer edges.  I splattered a little bit of watered down Old Olive ink with an old toothbrush and stamped this retired Flourishes sentiment from a stamp set called ''Pears'' in SU "Hello Honey" ink.
This is the banner that inspired this card.I hope you like this card, thank you for visiting, till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
