Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 52 - Indian Summer


This weeks Scrapbook Sisters Challenge is Indian Summer, although I don't think so as it's looking quite miserable out of my window at the moment!!  Still here's hoping!!

I decided to be good and use up some of the masses of papers that I have lurking - this one is a Fancy Pants design from a couple of years ago, and I really liked the ethnic pattern in quite a modern colour.  I also decided to ink up one of my lovely Gorjuss girls to create a tent card - although you can't see it is in the photo that well - sorry!!

Honestly what an idiot, fancy not taking a picture from the side... duh!!  I used some dark red/rust CS to mat the paper onto and also to cut a flower thingy with a Marianne die, then a couple of lengths of browny bronzy organza and I've adhered her so she's perching on the edge of the card apature.

I'm still working on the hair colouring thing, I'm getting there, but I can now see what colours I need to make a difference as I think the E15/E18/another couple I used but can't remember which(!) are darker than I intended, but overall I think she looks OK.  I should give myself a break really as before last year I didn't think I could colour at all!!

Thanks for stopping by

I like the dark brown hair, anything lighter I think wouldn't have shown up so well. She is so cute sitting on the edge of the aperture and I love the colors, very soft and pretty.
