Hello - Color Dare #362 Fall Inspirational Photo

Here is my DT Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #362 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #335, changed to landscape.  

Started out with Distress Oxide Inks using a variety of colors from the photo inspiration, sprayed with water and created a colorful background.  It appeared too blotchy so decided to stamp the same oxide ink colors randomly with a couple of the stamps from the Ink Blot. It still wasn't the affect expected so decided to stamp and mask one of the leaves randomly on my background with black ink.  It wasn't as bright as the photo inspiration; but it did have a muted colorful background. Added Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle.  

Cut the PML card for my sentiment, layered with black, added a Vellum butterfly and green sequins.

Also sent to the following Challenges: Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine some these challenges too. Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks, so please join us and also check out our previous Challenge #361 Monochromatic Greens which is still open.

Your background really has the feel of fall. (I thinking inking on the dots was a great idea). Thanks for linking up at the PINspirational Challenge. Sandy/DT
