Paper Smooches SPARKS: January Picture Perfect challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week is a Picture Perfect challenge.  

This week we are inspired by the following picture:

Instantly I saw the birch tree branch and knew I had to use the PS Autumn Groves set for my creation! Then I was on Pinterest and saw THIS photo and thought that I could recreate something similar by using the whitewashing technique and Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink. LOVE
You can kind of see the whitewashing technique on the trees-- I just used a watercolor brush, lots of water, and Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink to color the trees in. SUPER EASY! 

I also used the PS Scripty Sayings and the Sassy Script (small hearts) stamp sets, as well as the Seasonal Tree (birds) and Hearts dies. 

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love.

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends January 17th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
