KABOODLE DOODLES CHALLENGE 186 - Season of Fall or Fall Colors

I went "surfing" for new challenge blogs today - and found several that I want to keep track of and try whenever I am able.  I just finished the cards for September's Stamp Club, and since Autumn is the theme, they fit perfectly with this challenge.  I have two cards that I am submitting.
The first one is done with alcohol inks and a pieced embossed image.  I used about 5 different alcohol inks on the pad with a copper metallic mixative.  I applied these to a piece of glossy white cardstock, then added the blending solution to the pad and went over the entire piece again to really blend the colors together.  The image is the September Stamp of the Month from CTMH - available only from Sept 1 - 30 - and for only $5 with a qualifying purchase!  I embossed the entire image in cranberry, then used various other colors to emboss different strips, cut them out and adhered them over the original.  I finished it off by cutting down and fraying some of the burlap ribbon.

The second card uses the fall colors, but I chose a phrase that could work as either sympathy or thinking of you, depending on the situation.
 The paper is the new Huntington paper pack from CTMH with Barn Red cardstock.  The stamp set is Happy Autumn (D1550 - CTMH).  I used a little of the bronze shimmer tape, as well as Barn Red, Champagne, Cashmere, Desert Sand, Creme Brulee and Autumn Terracotta inks.  The design of the card is Pattern #22 from the new Make It From Your Heart - Vol 2 by CTMH.

Head on over to Kaboodle Doodles Challenges and see what other fall creations have been submitted!  Thanks for taking a look.
