The Colours of Autumn

Hello Everyone!!!  Today it's time for another JustRite Stampers Challenge (JRC_040) and this week it's to use the colours of Autumn (or Fall as our US friends call it!).  As an exciting bonus, this week's challenge is being sponsored by Flower Soft!!  So do you want to win some Flower Soft??  Check out the Fall Colour Challenge over on the JustRite Inspiration Blog!!  :)  I've decided to use the Scarecrow from the BRAND NEW JustRite set called Hangin' Around ---- and it's in CLING!!!!  YEP - JustRite are now releasing their JustRite Cling range and we are SO EXCITED about it and hope you are too!!  :)

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with Pumpkin Pie and some Basic Grey Pyrus DP.  The vertical panel is more Pumpkin layered with some more Pyrus.  The horizontal panel is yet more pumpkin, punched with the EK Success Embossed Curve punch and topped with some mesh.  Over the top is some dark brown stitched grosgrain ribbon.  The Scarecrow is from the new Hangin' Around Cling set by JustRite and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (B000, B91, B95, B97, G12, G21, G24, G28, E31, E33, E35, E37, E51, E53, R02, R22, R27, YR00, YR12, YR16, YR18, C3, C5, C7).


Then to add some texture and a bit of POP, I've added some Autumn Flower Soft to the ground and some new Ultra Fine Toffee Flower Soft to parts of the Scarecrow for his straw!  I have to say I was impressed out how fine the Ultra Fine Flower Soft is and that it doesn't overpower the image!!  To finish I added a grosgrain bow to the ribbon and topped with a maple leaf from the Nested Maple Leaf Nestabilities and coloured it with Copics YG00, YR00, YR12, YR16 and also added a couple of Chino pearls to the corner.

Stamps - Hangin' Around (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey Pyrus DP

Accessories - Copics, Flower Soft, Large Oval, Big Scallop Oval and Nested Maple Leaves Nestabilities, EK Success Single Embossed Curve Border Punch, May Arts Mesh, Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Chino Pearls, Foam Tape.
