Autumn Splendor - a Thanksgiving Card

My card share for today is a Thanksgiving card - a holiday that is coming closer and closer - and my supply of them is limited.
I pulled out one of my favourite autumn cards - Autumn Splendor - and using the reinker drop technique to color the leaves, mounted them on a panel. I almost called the card Autumn Splendor Spice because I used the  Spice Cake designer paper as well picking up the colours from the paper to colour the leaves.

Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Day of Gratitude
Inks: Soft Suede, Reinkers: Soft Suede, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard
Papers: More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Pool Party, More Mustard, Watercolor paper, Spice Cake designer paper
Accessories: Aqua brush, scallop border punch, Word Window Punch, 3/4 X 15/16" oval punch, 3/8" pool party ruffled ribbon, Gold embossing powder

The leaves were first stamped on watercolor paper with Versa mark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.  After spritzing the images with water the various colors of the reinkers were applied with an aqua painter - allowed to dry - and then cut out.

Tami White did a wonderful video on the reinker drop technique.  Click on the link here  to view the video.
