Hot Foiled Watercolored Colorful Fall

Happy September, friends and the Design Team is back from our summer hiatus and ready to inspire! Today's challenge is The Card Concept #159: Colorful Fall:
What a gorgeous picture and this year you can be inspired by the picture or the colors shown or both! I was inspired by the beautiful colors and leaves to create some Mixed Media cards and a bookmark using gold foiling and watercoloring:
When you start playing with your Spellbinders Hot Foil Glimmer Machine, of course you have to make multiples! It's heated up and ready to go, so I kept dropping plates and sentiments down until I had several to use.
They were foiled with Spellbinder's Gold Hot Foil onto Ranger Watercolor Paper - the smooth side for better adhesion with the foiling. I watercolored with The Stamp Market Color Crush Watercolor Palette. Lovely colors!
I tried to capture the beautiful shine from this foiling system in these pictures:
I love making bookmarks. I read books - just old school I guess!
Here are some of the rest of the products I used for these projects:

I look forward to seeing your creations on The Card Concept site. The challenge is for 2 weeks, so come play along!
