My favorite season is certainly Fall. The colors, the smells, the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. Spring is beautiful, and I love the heat of summer (not really a fan of winter)…but the fall is full of magic. So I was very happy when I found out the the new Dilly Beans challenge for this week was simply “Fall.” What a wonderful challenge, right? Here’s what I made, using “Emily Framed.”
I am so in love with Megan’s framed images. This is one of many that are in one. And I find that taking these images and making a card with them is such a simple and quick process, because of that frame.
Isn’t Emily pretty? I loved coloring her eye, and her beautiful hair, of course! She was colored with watercolor markers and Copics. Incidentally, my deep orange watercolor marker is rather juicy…and I cut the image out before it dried. Well, some orange got on my finger and I touched some of my tri-colored background! There was no way to hide/fix it…so I went with it. Smudging my orange fingerprint here and there to make it look as though it was done on purpose. But you won’t share my dirty little secret, will you? 😉
What do you think of my leaves? Aren’t they cool? I love anything that’s holographic…since I was a kid. So when I found these in my stash, I was very excited. It was hard not to use the whole package, but I thought simplicity was key for this card. My sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.
So won’t you play along with the Dilly Beans gals? We would love to see what you come up with for this Fall challenge! Head over to the Challenge Blog for all the details, and to see what the rest of the DT created. And then, visit the shop to snag some of the beautiful framed images from Dilly Beans. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

That image is too cute with her peeking through her bangs and the way you placed it at the bottom of the card. Brilliant
BTW I love holographic too
This is really great. I like all the coloring – but the eye is mesmerizing!
