Nature Distressed ISCC12

Today’s Innovative Stamp Creations challenge is a Sketch found at Witty Living - you can view it here .

Nature Distressed:

Ever wonder if the trees are "distressed" in the fall - stuggling to hold on to their leaves because they are not yet ready of the long winter to begin?
As you can see I did modify the sketch to fit my idea - I believe that is what sketch challenges are intended for - keep the general concept but make it your own.

The pattern paper I made using a background stamp and the smallest tree from the Maple Tree Painting set. I added lots of sponging and distressing - even some tearing and crumbling.

Hi again Kat! Thanks for dropping in to see me. Of course I'll come give you some reciprocal love, you deserve it! I've loved your style for a while now (subscribed the first time I visited) but I really dig the shabby edges on this card. Makes for a more natural looking break between pieces. Love it!
