Autumn, my favourite season...

Hello again,

No DT inspiration today, just me enjoying my crafting :D
Autumn in all its colours is my favourite season, such different tones all around us that it just makes me smile :D

My make for today was inspirted by a the colour challenge over at the Kit and Clowder facebook page (as some of you know I am taking Alyce's colouring classes trying to improve my skin and hair with my alcohol markers!), the challenge is soft pastels (the secret tones of Autumn) so here is my entry....

I have got to say, I am very pleased with how this one turned out :D

The main image is 'Ribbons' by Krista of Saturated Canary, drawn in aid of supporting the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign and Krista kindly gave it away free on her Facebook page for Saturated Canary followers.
I have coloured her with my Graph'it Marker pens, using one of my fav combo's of pink and greys.

The paper is a gorgeous digital paper set called Silk Promises by The Stamping Chef and I have edged all the papers (and the image) with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and the sprinkled with Glamour Dust glitter (another of my fav bits in my stash).

I have the added pearls, lace, flowers and of course a pink ribbon to enhance the image :D  The fabulous star pin is from Live and Love Crafts

Here's more photo's to show the details:

Thank you so much for stopping by and please leave a comment before you go :D

Happy Crafting :D
