The colors of fall

There are two parts to this post for today. The first is this totally cute Turkey Kitty stamp from The Cat's Pajamas new Swanky Clear set, Gobble It Up!
I used the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch #38 for this week to create my card.
Take note of the little orange strip going down the side of the card. I used a piece of Core'dinations and I created a texture on it with a Fiskars Paper Crimper. One swipe through the crimper and my paper has a great wave design and then I sanded that to help it show up better.
I used Copic markers to color the little feathers on the back of the kitty cat that I stamped with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I took a photo with the sun shining on the feathers so you could see the results of coating them with Aleene's Paper Glaze. LOVE the epoxy look this liquid gives an image.
Second part to my post - I want to share some photos from our recent trip up into Oregon. I'll need to take several posts to share just a glimpse of the tons of photos I took but I will start with a few from Multnomah Falls. If you have never stopped at this attraction you HAVE too and if you can pick the fall for that visit, then all the better. We have stopped here several times but this time with the fall colors was just plain breathtaking. Add a light fall of rain to make the colors more intense.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
