Farewell to Summer

Well, we're midway through September now and I think it's fair to say that summer is officially over. I hope you had a good one. And I hope Autumn isn't going to be too wet, cold and windy for you.
Unlike the image I've used for my card for the new "Autumn/Fall" challenge at One Stitch at a Time:
I used this sweet "Stroll in the Rain" digi stamp by Reese's Scrap Pieces and coloured it with a mixture of Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils. And I had a go at creating a cloudy sky background using Distress Inks... I think the Weathered Wood Distress Ink was the perfect colour for a gloomy, rainy sky, eh? :)
I used kraft cardstock and patterned paper in rich, autumnal colours and added a piece of gorgeous brown lace and finished things off with some pearls in a bronzy brown colour.
To enter the challenge, just make a project that fits our theme and link it up at the OSAAT blog. If you use a Stitchy Bear product (and we'd love to see your Stitchy Bear creations! :D) you'll be in with a chance to win our main prize. Entries without a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

What a wonderful project! Your coloring of the iage is just fabulous. You can almost sense her "contimplative attitude" as enjoys her journey in the rain. Your design is perfectly balanced and composed. Wonderful design point of view! Thanks so much for leaving this on our doorstep here at 613 Avenue Create!

Fabulous sky for this sweet image. Love the bright colours of her raincoat, boots, umbrella, and the flowers in contrast to it. The wide lacy trim is such a great detail and the dotty paper is great for a rainy day card. Thank you for joining our Inspired By a Song challenge at Eclectic Ellapu this week. I hope we see you again soon.
