Apple season for my Creatalicious DT card

Hi everyone,

We have a new challenge over at Creatalicious and it's called "Distress Your Edges".

In my area, Autumn is also time for apple picking and we are surrounded by apple orchards, which explains a bit how I came up with the idea for my card. Therefore; I decided Tilda was going to be busy picking apples. All 3 stamps are Magnolia, I used Tilda with lace jeans, apple basket & wagon with eggs (which I masked the apples from the basket to replace the eggs). I love masking and creating scenes so this was fun. My image is colored with my copic markers using fall colors, sorry I did not keep track of the colors.



I used my Zutter distezz-it-all for all my edges and then inked with Vintage Photo and a bit of Walnut Stain distress inks. Papers are Magenta and Daisy D's, not recent collection as I dug them out of my stash drawer. For my corners I used Cuttlebug vintage die cuts.



Hope you can come play with us at Creatalicious challenge, we would love to see your creations.

I am also entering my card in the following challenges

Louise, your card is just fabulous. I love the rich autumn tones you've used through out. Your apples are so beautifully colored they look delicious! Love that you colored the barrels such a deep brown - it's a perfect match with your paper. The corner adornments and fall floral arrangement are such appealing finishing touches.
Hugs,
Barb
