Basic Grey Challenges - Autumn Colours


Happy Weekend everyone!  
We have  a new challenge starting today over  at Basic Grey Challenges and this is the stunning pic that we have for our photo inspiration challenge theme of Autumn Colours.

I've used a Mo Manning image called Harvest Fairy Apple - another fab cutie from Mo!  I coloured the image with my usual mix of Pro and Flex markers and then used my blender pen to create the texture on the apple skin.

My Basic Grey products are the papers from the Lucille 6x6 paper pad.  The corner shape is a Marianne die and the leaf borders were cut with a Memory die.  The flowers are all from stash and I also added a couple of wooden leaves which I coloured with Rusty Hinge distress ink.


Finally the sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink - seemed to go exactly with that oversized apple!


As always, our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

A big welcome to my lovely new followers - really appreciate it, and may have to sort out some Blog Candy soon!

Enjoy your weekend - I'm off to Ally Pally on Sunday for the Big Stamping show - anyone else going?  (Don't take all the bargains if you're going today!)
