Passion for Promarkers - Week 3 - Cinnamon & Pumpkin

Woohooo, another  Tuesday and another new challenge at Passion for Promarkers. When I first saw the colours for this weeks challenge; cinnamon and pumpkin I thought - argh!!!!!!!!!! I don't normally do orange!

BUT.... once I started playing with the cinnamon and pumpkin, I loved them. I think orange should be the new black :D

The prize for this week's challenge is a £10 voucher for the fabulous 

So here's my DT submission...

500 Debbi
Image: Rain, Miss Anya from The Greetings Farm
Coloured with: Cinnamon & Pumpkin, Cocoa and Orange for shadows and also Umber for the darker parts of her hair. I accidentally picked up Saffron instead of Ivory to do the skin, but once it was dry I thought it was quite nice, there is a hint of Pastel Pink for her cheeks. Finally I used a white Gelly Roll Med sakura pen for the highlights.
The patterned papers are both Basic Grey - Offbeat.
The orange and Brown card for matting is core'dinations - the scalloped oval and plain oval were cut with nesties in the cuttlebug
The green card is core'dinations which I ran through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder.
Papermania Autumn ribbon, Papermania gold teardrop gems, Papermania fabric flower coloured with Pumpkin promarker, Cream Prima flower marked with Cinnamon promarker, Papermania chocolate brad, I used a woodware leaf punch to cut the leaves from core'dinations card. Finally the greeting is a Daisy & Dandelion greeting banner.
And here's Miss Anya's close-up...
remember to go visit the rest of my DT team-mates (links on my sidebar) and have a lookie at their fab cards.
