Autumn Leaves

Morning - This post is my latest creation for the DT at I love Promarkers. The theme this week is
Autumn and I have used this image from Tiddly Inks called Wryn's Leaves.

I love the Autumn colours - although not quite my usual bright schemes - they are still so colourful. I have used 3 different sheets of paper and they are all from Simple Stories collection, ironically called I Heart Summer - they are very warm shades but still perfect for Autumn.
I die cut 3 leaves from some different colour paper scraps and I used a little hole punch to tie them together with twine, which I then tied in a bow on the button (As always from my stash of buttons & ribbon). The greeting is from Jillibean Soup and was a perfect colour match. I also added a few enamel dots from My Minds Eye Jubilee collection. I hand cut the wave and used a corner rounder (is that a word??) on the image panel and based Kraft card.

I used these promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour Wryn -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Hair - Chestnut & Raw Sienna.
Leaves - Grass & Forest, Summer Sun & Sleigh Bells, Honeycomb & Spice, Lime Zest & Lime Green, Pesto & Olive, Maroon & Burgundy.
Pile of leaves - Mixture of the above colours as well as Soft Khaki.
Background - Khaki, Icicle & Ivory.
Dog - Warm Greys.
