Paper Sweeties October 2016 Inspiration Challenge

Hello my stampy friends!
Welcome to the October Inspiration Challenge here at PAPER SWEETIES!

I just love the beautiful neutrals of this photo!

It is the season for the leaves to fall from the trees, but I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon here in Charlotte! We just had our FIRST day of below 80 degrees this Summer and Fall yesterday!! Yay!!!

I just love the tree from Paper Sweetie's TREE OF LIFE  stamp set! 
I stamped the tree with Versamark ink  and then heat set the image with brown embossing powder. 
Next, I masked the tree and stamped the grassy area. I added some extra shading to the tree and tree roots with some Distress Markers.

I made the background with distress inks, water and piece of acetate packaging to "smoosh" on the background!  I sprayed the card all over with some Shimmer Spritz. I LOVE this stuff! It made the card so shiny!

I hope you have been inspired to join our
We love seeing what you create! 
AND you could win a $20 dollar gift card to the PAPER SWEETIES Shoppe!!!

for some awesome inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!
