Saturated Canary Challenge No 4 - Thursday 10 November 2011

Over at the Saturated Canary Challenge this time the challenge is "Autumn colours".  For me autumn means orange, brown, green, blue and yellow.  For my card I have used Krista's image called Peggy Sue.  Isn't she such a beauty?  I have coloured her with Promarkers and highlighted the spots in her dress with Adirondack Terracotta Acrylic Paint.  I cut around the image, rounded the corners and then used an orange chalk ink pad around the edge.  The backing papers are all scrappy bits from the box and include Dovecraft Sugar and Spice and DCWV textured card which I have embossed and then sanded.  The card is finished off with some stitching, ribbon bow, doily and some flowers from the My Craft Studio Click Print Go Paper Flowers CD (for those of you that might be thinking that I've got my MCS package to print - I haven't - I had to use Windows Photo Viewer and print it from there which is such a nuisance).  The flowers I have added the same acrylic paint to the centre to tie it all in together.
