This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Grandin Road. I found my inspiration from the TEACHER'S APPLE PERSONAL NOTE PAD. All images and sentiment are from TREEHOUSE STAMPS. I used Go Green and Life's A Picnic. I stamped the scene then colored with copics then sponged, I stamped the ant in black brillance then the sentiment with markers. I used the "out of the box" technique. The apple was inked with markers, cut out, popped up and covered with crystal effects. I used my real red marker to make some faux apples on the tree.
