CAS Mix Up September Challenge

Hi Friends!
I had a free day to play along with the CAS Mix Up September Challenge!  My house guest was at the beach and I had my shaving cream sitting on my desk waiting for me to use it!
I made about 6 pages of marbling using fallish colors of yellows, oranges, greens, even dropping in some purples and some reds.  My thought was to use leaves and pumpkins...I just love fall!!  And I love how these colors turned out, perfect for each of the things I wanted to die cut!!

Stamps & dies:  PTI Autumn Pumpkins
 Lil' Inkers Stitched leaves
 MFT Fall Foliage (sentiment)
 I used shaving cream and reinkers for the marbling, die cuts and stamping.
I think you have until the 24th to enter your card!
this was a very fun technique and I have lots left over to use for other cards!
Heart Hugs, friends!
