Autumn Colors

Good morning friends.  We have a new challenge over on the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog.  This week our lovely Sheena chose our theme and she has asked us all to use autumn colors.

I used So Tall from the Swings and Slides 2 collection.  Isn't this little girl adorable?  I love all the cute kids in the collection and they're so much fun to color!  Anyway, I used copics and colored pencils to color this sweetie.  I used some yellow acrylic paint to add some dots to the flowers.  The scallop and flourish dies are by Memory Box.  I added some lace and a little yo-yo flower that I made.  If you don't know how to make the yo-yo flowers you can see the easy tutorial here.

Please make sure you stop by the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous work by the DT.  I hope you play along in our challenge this week as you have a chance to win a fabulous voucher from  Bunny Zoe's Crafts.
