Autumn colours


I was so pleased to be asked to be guest designer at the Elisabeth Bell's World challenge as she is one of my favourite artists. This gorgeous digi is Little Rapunzel and I absolutely love her. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are First Edition Desert Bloom and they have been distressed with a TH tool and DI spiced marmalade added to the edges. These papers are double sided so I used the other side of the offcuts from the backing paper as the two strips, rather than binning them. The leaf arrangement was made with a TH Autumn Gatherings die and I added some Prima flowers and pearls. Check out the gorgeous cards from the DT for the Autumn Colours challenge.
