DV 115 Autumnal Colours

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is the colours of Autumn. We are sponsored by Robyn’s Fetish and I have used their cute scarecrow image in my project.

115 Autumn Colours

I went for the often fiery red and orange hues of autumn that you see in the hedgerows and trees as the leaves start to turn, and in some of the harvest fruits, and made a background with those hues from brushos on watercolour card.

My scarecrow was coloured with copics, and his white stitching added with a Sharpie paint marker.  The quote I found online, and the die, which I sort of hoped looked a little like a corn field at harvest time although I went a bit ott with the colour, is from Sheena Douglass’ perfect partners range.

I am entering this into:-
