Autumn in the Garden Challenge, Come and Get It Challenges

Today is the day for a new challenge at Come and Get It Challenges.  The theme is Autumn in the Garden.  I used some images from Fred She Said for my DT project below.  This was my first time working with this sponsor and I loved working with this little Emma.  They have her doing all kinds of things for all the seasons in their shop. The one below is called Emma in the Leaves and I also used Sunflowers and Pumpkins.

Emma in the Leaves/ Pumpkins and Sunflowers by Fred She Said
I colored the pumpkins with my Prismacolor Pencils but Emma, the leaves and the flowers were colored with my Graph'it Markers.  I saw a youtube of someone dong pumpkins with their pencils and they turned out so awesome so I wanted to give it a try.  I think the picture is washing out the depth I achieved a little bit but it is my favorite thing I have done with my pencils so far.  I used a range of different oranges but I also used a red hue and well as one of my yellow pencils.  They took longer this way but they were fun to work on.  I didn't make a list of the markers I used but if there is something specific you are curious about the combo for I am sure I can figure it out for you.  My papers are DCWV, the sentiment I had printed for another project but it went well on this one too, it is from Inky Impressions.  When I printed everything out I had a gatefold card in mind but then I couldn't get the images to line up right so I had to go with plan B.
