Flourishes September Release Day 6

  Hello! Welcome to my studio.

Today's card was made using a new stamp set called, Fall Tree.
The illustrator is none other than Lauren Pope.

I embossed the tree with clear embossing powder on white cardstock.
Using Distress Ink and a sponge, I rubbed the ink into the card stock, bringing out
the beauty of this intricate tree.

I then took a spray bottle of water and spritzed the background,
which left some nice watercolor effects.

The designer paper if from Authentique's "Nestled" pack.
The blue cardstock is from Flourishe's Color Made Easy collection.

So is the brown card stock that I used to make
a little round embellishment, and a mat for the image.

It has been so much fun creating for this release. I have
thoroughly enjoyed the other design team member's art.
Be sure to visit all of them!
