Autumn Colours at the Graph'it Marker Blog

I'm soooo pleased its finally got around to Friday again... the weeks seem to be running away from me and before long Christmas will be upon us!

Not just yet though because today see's the start of a new challenge over at the Graph'it Marker Blog and this week we would like to see you use all the shades of Autumn!

I have to say Autumn has got to be my most favorite season!  It's not too hot like summer yet not too cold like winter, the colours all around are beautiful and Halloween is fast approaching... but most of all I can start cuddling up in my nice cosy comfy clothes!

Now remember you can use any type of Markers to join in the challenge!

The winner of this week's challenge will win a fantastic prize of 6 Graph'It markers and a Mix'It Blending palette and Mix'It Fluid!

So here's what I made:

I used one of the super adorable owls from the Bonbon Belles Cdrom at Polkadoodles (if you are quick you'll find this with a super 20% discount over at the store!)

The papers I used are from the CD too!

Of course I used my Graph'it Markers to colour in the image and here are the colours I used:

Owl: 3150,3160,3180,3190
Skirt: 8130, 8150, 8180
Flowers and feet: 2150,2180, 7125, 7130

I added some paper blooms (also coloured with my Graph'its to match my card) and some lush ribbon which I got from Chloe Stamps.

I added my usual faux stitching around the edges :-)

I hope you like it!
