Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge


Happy Monday, my friends! =) It's time for a new Picture Perfect Challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog. Here is this week's inspiration photo.


Isn't these leaves beautiful? Here is how it inspired me.


I tried to mimic the colors of the leaves in the photo and ink them as close to the colors as I could, but I guess it didn't really work that way. =)


The leaves are inked with Memento Luxe Inks. I applied the colors with cosmetic sponge and rub the inks a little with my fingers afterward to blend them better. Each of the leaves was coated with Rock Candy Distress Stickles for a little shine.


The patterned paper is from Reflections Fall 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park. The jar and matching die are from Crystal Clear set and the sentiment is from Chit Chat set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge. Here are the links:
Hope you can join us this week! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
