Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Reminder: Orchard

Just a reminder that there is still time to play along with the challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Orchard.

I was so excited about moving into a fall theme, that I just had to make another card.  I took inspiration from the variety of apple colors and the tangle of greenery.

CC Thanks a Bunch of Apples

I love these teeny apples. It's part of the Taylored Expressions Little Bits - Fruit set.  It also has tiny grapes and cherries and pears and more.  Then I added a coordinating sentiment from the Berry Special set.

I generally avoid watercoloring or sponging or most anything to do with Distress Inks - my personality does not do well with the lack of control.  But sometimes it all comes together such that I have to venture into this creative realm.  These apples were quite easy.  I just distressed rainbows of apple color onto a piece of cardstock, then cut the apples out of the portions that I liked the best! 

I hope to see you playing along at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!
