To celebrate, I've created this beautiful fall card, which I show you how to make in the video below. We've also got a lot going on over on the Kat Scrappiness Blog today with a HUGE SALE (including a coupon code), our very first CARD CHALLENGE, and lots of great PRIZES from some seriously amazing sponsors!

Crisp Autumn Stencil by Carta Bella. Because I used Kraft cardstock, I first started out by applying some Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink as a base layer to make my colors pop.
Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System to layer on some color using Sharpie Markers in brown, green, orange, and yellow. You could easily do some Distress Ink blending here and flick on some ink splatters to create a very similar effect.
As you can see below, I created this background using both Kraft and white cardstock. I used the same markers for each panel, yet they each look so different. It's interesting to see the burgundy colors coming through on the white panel, when I didn't use any burgundy or red markers. I love the speckled look I was able to get by using the airbrush tool. Of course I also had to add a little shimmer by spritzing my panels with the Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz.
Next, I cut a piece of cardstock on the diagonal to place my sentiment on, and trimmed it out with some copper glitter cardstock from my stash. I used the Brushed Alphas stamp from Mudra to create my sentiment, along with an older stamp set from Mama Elephant called Happy Everything.
Aww-tumn Sequin Mix by Kat Scrappiness. I topped each of the sequins with some Liquid Pearls and finished off the card with a natural twine bow.
