Cutie Pie Challenge – Shades of Autumn!

Hello, how are you keeping?

We have a brand new challenge at the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog  today and our theme this fortnight is Shades of Autumn!

We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps
and one lucky winner will win this wonderful prize!

Bugaboo very generously allowed the team to choose some images for this challenge and I chose to use Halloween Brat Pumpkin
So I went all spooky (well ish) and created a side stepper Halloween scene! I don’t have a pumpkin die so I made one from 3 oval die-cuts and drew a scary face on it that bears more than a passing resemblance to my boss!!! J I brayered my sky and dripped water on it to give the impression of a starry night but then realised I hadn't masked off my moon!! Doh!! So I cut one out instead and drew some bats on it! Necessity is the mother of invention!! J
I printed her off in grey as the ink kept running when I started to colour! Hate that!!

Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Cabin’, ‘Mini Blooms’ (leaves) & ‘Beautiful Blooms (leaves) – Tonic ‘Nesting Ovals’ & ‘Nesting Circles’- Die’sire ‘Icicles’ (grass) – Spellbinders ‘Garden Gate’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – American Crafts
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Big ‘n’ Juicy ‘Foliage’ ink pad to create the sky – peel offs
Hopeless Hand Drawing & Paltry Paper Piecing:  Bats – door - pumpkin

Creep on over to the Cutie Pies blog to see all the wonderful projects created by the amazing team.

Thanks so much for looking, and have a great day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
