Pink Autumn

Hi there 🙂 Another Sunday has rolled around, so that means it’s time for me to share some inspiration from Ching-Chou Kuik 🙂 Our monthly Facebook challenge, with the theme Fall/Fall colors, has a week left to go, so you still have time to get an entry in! This week, the DT was thrown an extra challenge, and it was Think Pink….as a nod to breast cancer awareness. When the DT has an extra challenge, I always like to incorporate the monthly challenge theme, as well. Well, this week, it was a bit of a mission!!! I never think of pink as an autumn color, but I guess that’s what a challenge is all about!! I used the beautiful Autumn Fantasy, found in the Etsy Store. After coloring her up with my Copics….using mostly pinks, with the exception of the fall leaves, I started to develop an idea 🙂

I die cut some maple leaves, then used the same markers that I colored the leaves in the image, to color them. I die cut a pretty pink frame, glued it on a light pink base, and arranged the leaves around the image. Because I’d added some gold gel pen accents to the image, I stamped and embossed the Thank You sentiment in gold, and added some gold touches with Liquid Pearls. Before matting on a bright pink CS, I lightly edged the back with some gold ink.

Looking at the finished product, I was actually surprised at how good the pink looked with the fall leaves!! Probably not a “go to” color combo, but certainly one that I won’t discount any longer!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
