#87 Autumnal Armchair Bear

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - Autumnal colours
Sponsor & prize this week - Letraset - Promarkers!!!!! YEY!

I inked up this week with a totally gorgeous LOTV image that I think is called 'Armchair Bear' & he was, needless to say, coloured with Promarkers though I did use the odd Tria pen too. The scene itself might not be autumnal in particular, but I have gone with the idea of my bears keeping snug & warm as the days & nights are getting colder & using leaf printed papers as well as card in autumnal leaf & berry hues.

The image & its mat were cut out using Spellbinders Labels Two dies & the beautiful flower was made with Spiral Blossom One - well, I think it is beautiful anyway. LOL. I actually have some roses blooming at the moment, but I don't think they can work out what season it is - & who can blame them. If you live in the UK you will know exactly what I mean!  I have attempted to make these two more autumnal though with my paper choice, going for golden tones rather than the summery reds that I have in the garden, & although it might be 'rose-shaped' it reminds me of the crisp, crunchy leaf-fall that has that particular autumn smell to it as you walk through them. I am sure you know what I mean.  The side panels of my shaped card have also die shapes both by Marianne Creatables - creamy swirls & veined leaves (which was cut down so that I only had two leaves on each side).  A further spiral 'frond' on each side was made of green wire coiled into shape.  Hope you all like it & enjoy your day everyone!
