Shades of Autumn

Morning Folks and Happy Hallowe'en!
Don't panic, nothing scary going on in this post!
This week, the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers has been choosen by Elaine who would like to see projects inspired by 


 I fell in love with this cute squirrel image called 'Autumn Nutty' when it was released over at DigiStamp Boutique a couple of months ago. He seemed perfect for this challenge so here he is making his first appearance on my blog, coloured up with promarkers and a touch of pencil:

I used another sheet of my current favourite paper, Dovecrafts More or Less Collection. Initially, I wasn't too sure about the colours but now I'm beginning to think I should have bought 2 packs ...  I love the orange, turquoise and browns together (or in this case on their own) and the patterns. Here's what I'm rabbiting on about:

The woodgrain paper is from The Works, banner and sentiment die cuts from The Range, and hessian ribbon from the Art of Craft. The pinwheel flower/ rosette is from American Crafts, it's such an ancient packet - I can't even remember where I got it!  

Don't forget to pop over to
 to see what the rest of the design team have made!
Get creating with your Letraset / Winsor & Newton markers and join us!! Remember you can enter any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.

This week we  have two prizes, a packet of 6 promarkers and a 30% discount voucher from Petal Lu 
for our winner.
