More Autumn Colours


The colour challenge from SPCC this week consists of these beautiful autumnal tones.
The image I chose to illustrate them is from Chris Dark, the Sketching Stamper. (See the link on my sidebar)
I was playing around with the skin tones of my Copics (which is all I had when I began colouring this image) and used Derwent Pencils for the fruit and leaves. The colours I chose were a perfect match for this week's challenge. Lucky huh?
The sentiment is a little stamp from Studio G. There's something about harvest time which makes me think of all the years that food has been gathered in, in our green and pleasant land!
It also reminds me of some of the cute songs I used to sing with the kids at school at harvest time too! 'Cauliflowers fluffy' is one which comes to mind!

  1. Hi Chrissie! Love your card and how you've coloured the image is superb. The autumn colours are magical aren't they, it's a great time of year. Looks like you've taken to the copics like a duck to water and I hope you're enjoying them. Chris xx
