Autumn Colours..................................

Hello there!

I am here with some mid challenge inspiration for the current challenge at Graph'It Markers Challenge Blog.  I chose to use an ArtbyMiran image called 'Autumns Memories'.

Skin:  4125, 4150, 3210, 4155, 4135, 4145 & 8160
Hair:  2150, 3110, 3140, 3150
Hat, Coat & Shoes: 2105, 2110, 2150, 2180
Trousers & Scarf: 3245, 3250, 3255
Book: 1210, 1250, 1270
Leaves:  2105, 2120,2140
Background:  2105, 2110, 2140, 3210, 4180

Of course she is coloured with my Graph'It Markers, you can see the range here.  I really loved colouring this, these colours aren't on my usual colouring pallete and I love how they came out. I tried a new combo for skin and was more adventurous with the 3210. I softened it by going over it with the 4155 and I think it gives a realistic shadow effect.

I cut her out with a Spellbinders die from 'Decorative Labels no 28'.  The papers are from one of my craft CD's - I thought the leaf papers were perfect for the challenge.

I added some flowers, I think I went a bit mental with them to be honest, but as they are the embellishments I add at the end, I just kept on going with my flower arrangement!!

The wooden buttons are from my stash, the sentiment is from the Polkadoodles Pretty Sweet Collection.

So there we have it, my mid challenge inspiration, I hope you like it. Pop on over to the blog and see the rest of the design teams inspiration for the challenge. Join in te fun with us!!

Thanks for popping past, I'll see you soon!
