Doodle Patry - Old Italian Street

Inspiration is a funny thing - sometimes I try to create something and then I see a picture - get inspired - and create something completely different. I have to tell you - I didn't plan to make this card today -but when I saw the inspiration picture on Photo-Synthesis challenge blog I fell in love with the soft, soothing fall colors and just had to use them. It's 30+ Celsius here and I really wish it was 10C less and could go for a walk through falling red, brown and yellow leaves. :)I used a digi from Old Italian Street from Doodle Pantry, printed it on watercolor paper and colored it with water based markers/inks.
The sketch I used is from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and I'm also entering it into this week's Simon Says challenge (lace and pearls)

Ingredients:
Stamp - Doodle Pantry - Old Italian Street digi
Paper - watercolor paper, SU Close to Cocoa CS, BG Perhaps DP
Ink - computer tonner, SU inks/markers
Other - heat gun (to heat set the tonner), Spellbinders Deckled rectangles dies, Lace, pearls
