Inspired by: Autumn colors

This week's challenge is:
Inspired By: Autumn colors

Hi  Everyone, 
It is my design day with Creative Inspirations paint and a new 
challenge for you:

Here's some inspiration:

I used raw sienna, burnt sienna, and burgundy creative inspirations shimmering paints.  I also used white, metallic copper and platinum Deliquesce. This was stamped and painted on white card stock then  mounted on kraft card stock.
The stamp set I used is the mighty oak from Paper trey ink. I used an EK success punch for the frame corners and embossed them with deliquesce metallic copper.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this week's challenge!!
Remember you do not need to use CI Paints on your projects but if you have them we would LOVE to see how you used them!!
As always thanks for stopping by and
have a great week!
