Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! It's cold. Over at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week, the challenge is Autumn. Well, had to be, didn't it? lol. We are sponsored this week by SIMON SAYS STAMP and there is a $15 spend up for grabs.
I'm somewhat limited on Autumnal stuff, but I did have this gorgeous scarecrow. It's a freebie from BECCY'S PLACE. Thanks, Beccy. I didn't have a clue what else I could do with the card other than wanting to do some panels. I've got my first Big and Juicy inkpad 'Spice' and really wanted to use it, so I got out some shiny card and brayered away and then cut the 4 panels. The background paper is from the 'All Fall' pad from Fancy Pants, inked with walnut stain distress ink.
After I'd coloured the scarecrow, I inked around his edges with spiced marmalade and walnut stain.
Once again, I dug deep into the dark recesses of my craft room for stuff I hadn't used (or even looked at) for years and found the skeleton leaves, dried ferns and corn. Old hat, I know...I mean, when was the last time you saw skeleton leaves used on a card, lol. Still, somehow, I think they work and I actually quite like the finished result - for a change.
I'm entering Mr Scarecrow into the following challenges this week:
TUESDAY THROWDOWN #22 - Anything goes.
CRAZY4CHALLENGES C4C59 - Autumn/Fall.
OUR CREATIVE CORNER - At least 3 embellishments.

Especially for you.
