Autumn? More like Winter !

There has been a definite chill in the air here today, I have a feeling that winter is just waiting around the corner. It was so cold when I left the house for work this morning; I even considered getting out my gloves . . . shock, horror!

It was my turn to host our craft group tonight so I’m a little late with this and I’m going to try to keep this posting brief (yeh, right, lol) .

This is Tilda with Sunflower and she’s my entry into a number of challenges:

Saturday Sketch Challenge #124

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #67 - Tag It

Challenge Up Your Life #29 - Autumn

Stampin' for the Weekend #48 - Autumn;
and last but not least

CES Challenge #7 - Create a Tag

She’s coloured with Copic markers:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20

Hair: E31; E33 and E35

Dress: Y08; Y17; YR02; YR07; B23 and B32

Socks: C1

Shoes: B23; B32; and C5

Sunflower: Y08; Y17; YG23 and brown Prismacolor pencil

Shadowline: C1

I used Prismacolor pencils for the deep shadow and finer detail on the sunflower.  I blended them down with Sansodor low odour solvent.

The paper is from DCWV "Pocket full of Posies" paper stack.

The tags were matted up and raffia threaded through the tops.

The rub on wording is from "K&Co" "K McKenna" Classic Collection.

The butterfly has been made using a Martha Stewart punch, some fine copper wire and some yellow seed beads.

The buttons are from my bits and bobs box and I've just threaded some raffia through them.

The 'message tags' are from DoCrafts "Daisy and Dandelion" collection.

I'm hoping to persuade my husband to go crafty shopping tomorrow with me (he calls it crafty crap shopping, how dare he, lol !!!!!)

I'm going to be looking out for some new paper stacks, I'm getting a bit jealous of all the wonderful papers others are using, lol.

I'm a little cross eyed now through sheer fatique so I will leave this here, so much for being brief, lol.

Thanks for reading,
