Blended Seasons Thank You Card

For the color challenge this week at CAS Colours & Sketches, Fiona chose some new colors from Stampin' Up! To be fair, one color is a returning color, but it is actually new to me since it was before I started using Stampin' Up! ink.  They are just perfect fall colors to me so I used the new Blended Seasons stamp set to showcase them.
The colors to be used:
I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image in Mango Melody on watercolor paper.  I did not remove the stamp from the Stamparatus lid.  Then I water colored the leaves with all three colors not really worrying that the outlines were getting lost.  When I was finished I restamped the image in Merry Merlot to get my outline.
I moved that stamp and did the same thing to extend the falling leaves.   After I had colored both images, I actually thought I 'd like the image to look a little looser, so I used my Aqua Painter and colored outside the lines!  This can be difficult for me at times - LOL.

I added a few sequins, a bit of coordinating paper down the side and the sentiment.  Very simple card to create and makes an impact.  I used "Thank You" because I can always use thank you cards, but this could easily be for any occasion.
