One-Layer Fall Card

Today's Impression Obsession challenge is all about fall cards. The picture of my fall card makes the finishing spray look a little odd and doesn't really show the gold metallic spray very well. Here is a close up of the shine:

To make the card, I masked off areas with some Eclipse Tape strips and then sponged the card with Tea Dye, Old Paper, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.  I then stamped the wheat and saying from the CL406 We Gather Together clear set using brown Versafine ink.  I then colored the wheat with assorted fall Prismacolor pencils (Henna, Goldenrod, Jasmine, Limepeel, Chocolate).  To finish the card, I spritzed the whole thing with gold shimmer spray.
