Simply Magnolia (DT) - Autumn Colours

Welcome to another challenge at Simply Magnolia.  Congratulations to our last winners. Your cards were absolutely stunning.

This fortnight our challenge is Autumn Colours.  Yvonne gave us this lovely pic to work from.


I really struggled with this one.  I realised when I started working on this card that I don't have ANY autumn shaded paper... nope, can you believe it!  I managed to find some tiny piece resembling autumn, as I usually work with pinks, blues, greens, ok I do use browns as well, but that's it!  With my limited supplies, here's what I managed to create...

I am showcasing Tilda Gone Fishing for the first time. Ain't she a cutie pie? 


Ribbon, flowers, sentiment from my stash. Tilda coloured in with Copics, stamped her with Momento's Rich Cocoa.  Love stamping with Rich Cocoa, haven't used Black for ages. Gives the images a softer look somehow - that's my opinion anyway!

Our sponsor is Duymelot, please visit them for all your crafting needs.

Thanks for popping by, hope to see you at the challenge, hugs Sharon
