DV #209 Autumn Colours

Our challenge at Dream Valley for the next two weeks, sponsored by the fabulous Sheepski Designs, is Autumn Colours.

I have used a Sheepski image called Butterfly Girl to create a journal page.

I printed her out on some stamping card and coloured her in with a combination of copics and polychromos pencils. She is a little lighter skinned that I intended but one of my copics ran completely dry mid colour so I was stuck with the paler shade.

The background was created with Distress Oxiders in Aged Mahogany, Dried Marigold and Ripe Persimmon, To frame where she was going to sit I went around the edge with just one stamp from La Blanche, one of my favourite scroll stamps. I stamped and embossed it alternately with white embossing powder, and copper embossing powder.

I had to put a circlet of flower in her hair because I accidentally cut the image up too small and made the top of her head square, which looked really odd, so I made the die cut flowers to give shape back to the top of her head! The others I added just for some balance.

The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Big Chat Snarky stickers and seemed perfect for her shushing finger!

The sparkle comes from a Tonic midas touch pen.
