613 Avenue Create Autumn Challenge

We have a new challenge starting today over at 613 Avenue Create and our optional twist this week is all about Autumn.  I love making autumn cards!  The papers are so pretty and I love the color combinations.  So I made two DT projects for you this week.  I will put them in seperate posts to avoid overly long postings.  The first I am going to share with you is done with images from Melonheadz Illustrations.  I've used two of her collections, Crazy Hair and also Fall Deluxe.  This was my very first Step Card and I have to say, I was blown away at how easy it was!  I am thinking of posting a quick tutorial here on my blog for all of you that think you couldn't make one.

So all my kids are colored up with my Graph' It Markers, except for their jeans.  Those are done with my denim blue prismacolor pencil and some OMS.  I just love the effect I can get with that pencil!  I am not going to list the markers I used since there are so many for this one but I do have them written down so if there is a combo you are interested in please contact me and I would be happy to share.  If you haven't tried these markers yet you really need to!  They blend out so easily and the color combos are so vibrant and true.  I am definently in love.
Ok, so I fussy cut most of the images- which hers are great for because they have a nice thick line and you don't lose the detail or effect of the image.  I punched the leaves from papers with different textures and inked them with distress inks.  The pumpkins are fussy cut from a fall glitter paper from my stash.  I think that is it.
