Autumn/Thanksgiving at All Dressed Up
I'm back today with a totally different colour scheme for me..... but guess what, I like it!! Hmmmm should I be worried about my lack of pink do you think?????
It's time for another fab challenge using my favourite digi stamps - All Dressed Up... and this little lady is called 'All Wrapped Up' - she's drawn by the super talented Wendy Burns and is available HERE. Isn't she just gorgeous?? As the theme is Autumn/Thanksgiving..... I decided to use tans/browns (OK - with a tiny bit of muted pink on the flowers and her tights..) Lots of E number copics and some promarkers did the job. I used a Nestie rectangle (plain and simple) and the papers were out of a Basic Grey pad called Marrakech. The 'belly band' is brown bazzil punched with a Martha Stewart border punch on both sides. I added a computer generated sentiment onto a La La Land Crafts Stitched Tab die, then finished with some flowers using a Die-namics Flower Trio die. A couple of pearls from The Hobby House added and that was it.
challenge blog and give it a go... you do need to use an All Dressed Up image.. but with such fabulous ones to choose from and even freebies too... who could resist?? And there's a wonderful prize of NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT THREE of these super digis to be won! These images really are taking off in a big way... not surprising really seeing as how cute they are and how talented Wendy is... and I'm so thrilled to be a Dressy Girl on the Design Team!
Take care all... and if you're going to any bonfires this weekend... ENJOY and stay safe!
Big Hugs and Happy Crafting
