Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #3!!

Autumn is my faaaaaaavourite time of year! I love the bright sunshine and cooler temperatures, so I can wear hoodies and sweaters and take walks with the fallen leaves crunching beneath my sneakers!! *sigh* Sadly, the fall this year has consisted mainly of rain, wind, clouds and the only thing underneath my sneakers is mud! YUCK!!

Anyhoooo, this week's hostess for our Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is Vicki and she has named her challenge, Shades of Autumn. Sounds so serene, doesn't it? I think she's trying to distract me from the anger I feel towards the weather right now...hahahahaaaaaa! It's a fun colour challenge and she wants us to use Brown, Rust and either Green or Yellow on our designs!!

So I pulled out pretty Posy! I think she looks a little coy and a tad mischievous with that wink! I used some great My Mind's Eye's actually from the Halloween paper kit they have called Boo To You...great colours! I stamped Posy on Neenah cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copic markers. The markers I used are: E000, E00, E11, E09, E08, YG03, YG99, E33, E35, E37, YR12 and YR14!

I cut her out with my new Nesties (don't ask me the number, I don't know...) and while it was still in the frame, I sponged on some Rangers dye ink. It came out a little harsher than I intended...I obviously need some practice doing that with dye inks. *sigh* I used Bazzill for the card base and some SU (I think it's Marigold Morning) to layer and then added some great Prima flowers with brads, some green ric rack and some flatback pearls. I pop dotted Posy and the sentiment layer (OH and that sentiment is from a new set of stamps that may be making an appearance over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps some time soon...hehe).

So there ya have it! Be sure to pop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog and check out the paper goodness those Krafty Girls have cooked up for ya! AND we have a special Krafty Friend joining us this week! Simonne has created a fabulous design that she has graciously shared with us!!

Me? I have to head into work this morning and work ALL day with my boss....not fun. Hope you have a better day than I will!!
