Crafting Musketeers challenge 29

This is my design card for team B for Crafting Musketeers challenge 29: autumnal colours - please click on the link to see the designs of the rest of the team and join in the challenge here where you can see the designs created by team A. The challenge is being sponsored by Oak House Studio.

I used spectrum noir aqua tints to create the background randomly painted and then sprayed with water (technique that Sheena Douglass quite often shares on C & C), adding some spots of glossy accents here and there when the background was dry. The barrel of apples with the spotlighted area coloured with spectrum noir alcohol pens is one that I'd used on a card long ago (didn't like it on that card, so I lifted it for this one), with some glossy accents on the apples. The image is 'basket of apples' by Sparkle n Sprinkle. The felt leaves were from Lidl.

Inspired by Our creative corner September: shades of autumn:
