Sisterhood of Crafters - FALL

Hello Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
I'm honored to be your hostess this time around and since FALL is in full swing here in N.E. Ohio, I decided that would be our challenge theme .
Don't you just love the crisp smell of Fall air and the beautiful trees when they are in beautiful Fall color?  I know this means that winter & cold weather is coming soon but for now I'm really enjoying the change of seasons!

For today's card I created my own background paper using Ken Oliver 'Color Burst' then once dried, the Bokeh technique using a homemade circle template, sponge dauber & white craft ink.
My image is colored with Copic markers and the sky background was created with a large sponge dauber and Tim Holtz 'broken china' distress ink.

I created this card while visiting my Michigan crafting friend Diane Hover (Nellie's Nest) and she was kind enough to let me rummage through her stash and I found this fabulous fall image to color.  I also borrowed her Copics to color with since I totally forgot to bring anything to color with myself!  DUH!!!  lol

Peek at the inside.

I hope you'll come join in our SISTERHOOD CHALLENGE and if you need inspiration, by all means come check out what my 'sistahs' have created!  I'm telling you they are one creative group!!  Keeping me on my toes for sure!!

Remember ... as long as you follow the theme of FALL, you can create anything!  Cards, scrapbook layout, mixed media ... whatever strikes your fancy!
