Warm Wishes

     There's a new challenge today at Colour Crazy and we're sponsored by Scrap n Dipity.  I used this lovely image called The Scarf, a very fitting image for those chilly fall or winter days.


     I decided on monochromatic autumn colors covering the range from the palest of yellow-oranges to those on the rust and burnt orange end, emphasized with neutrals of white and pale brown.  I think monochrome coloring can really focus the eye on the image and I often prefer it to coloring with many colors.  I colored with ProMarkers and used white gel inks to add a few highlights.  

     The image is cut with a simple, rectangle, die from Spellbinders and the leaves are cut from some fall dp with the very first Cheery Lynn die I ever bought.  The sentiment is printed, then cut with a die from QuicKutz.  

     The card base is made from confetti CS and I layered on the image and the leaves, then left it with lots of white space for a CAS design.

     Challenges:

     Come play with us this week!  We'd love to see what you make and submit.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
