The colours of Autumn :)


**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page 😦  **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Autumn Colours.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super surprise prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s my interpretation featuring the delightful Primrose – Butterfly Girl  by Crafty Sentiments all coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Her wings have also be given a sparkly covering of Glamour Dust 🙂 A few touches of white gel pen have given her eyes and teeth,along with the spots on the fly agaric style mushroom,some extra pop.A couple of dots also create a little shine to her shoes.The lovely papers are First Edition with top one being glittered.They’ve been teamed with some kraft card,wooden embellishments and one of my faves,jute twine,for a rustic feel.I chose some Prima Flowers following the Autumnal colours theme and just had to sneak in a hedgehog 😀 He’s so cute.I bought him a while ago on sale,which adds even more appeal 😉 Being a die I can make as many of these little guys as I like too 😀
