Its a colour thing

I was up in the Lake District last week - autumn - was no where to be seen.  Everything still looked lush and green.

This is supposed to be the season of leaves falling and lovely hot colours - my favourite season :D

We've a new challenge starting today ay All Dressed Up on Facebook the theme is Autumn / Halloween

I've used something a little different to show you you can use any image, you just need to use the right colours, papers and embellies.  This one is Butterfly Kisses Girl
I've used ProMarkers and a little black polychromos pencil to colour her with.  She's been cut out with a Spellbinders die and then mounted onto some black card stock cut with a Spellbinders Die.

Here's a close up of my flower section - all there can be found at Wild orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.  The wood chip is from Scrapienic.

The shaped card has been covered with black card stock.  The design papers from Santoro and Prima Marketing.  Both of these have been distressed.

Finally I've added a couple of wood chip leaves to add to the Autumn theme and a wood chip sentiment coloured with black ProMarker (all from Scrapienic).  I've also added a few black gems.

If you haven't already seen we've announced our new Dressy girls today for both the blog team and the Facebook Team - welcome to the team ladies :D
