Autumnal Finna

I had only just recently posted an autumnal card using a Mo Manning image for my DT card at I ♥ Promarkers, so I had to change my mind-set to start all over again with another autumnal card using ‘a Mo’. Having posted my last card too, and realising as I pressed the button that I had missed out mentioning some of the challenges I had intended entering, this at least meant I had another chance to enter those I had inadvertantly missed typing into Blogger.....LOL...  So apologies for my longer than usual list at the bottom! :)

The image I have chosen this time around is the glorious Fairy Finna and I have made her so autumnal, she almost looks like she is in her camouflage kit! LOL. Not the first image you might of thought for an autumn challenge, perhaps, but why shouldn’t she be an autumnal fairy too, and surely so well hidden in her seasonal garb, you really wouldn’t find her too easily at the bottom of your garden! LOL.

Coloured as usual with my beloved Promarkers, I have her making a leaf boat and she is happily sailing it down stream on a card following the lovely sketch over at Truly Scrumptious this week. I hope you all like today’s card enough to leave a comment and if you do, I thank you so much for all the kind words you leave me.

  2. I remember oohing and awwing over this image you used once before nad it still illicts the same response in me. I'm amazed at the close up of her hair, that its basicaly dots. And yet from a distance it looks so realistic, like kinky hair. Amazing. And I lover her suit. It looks so REAL! Awesome job. Hey, btw, are we done with autumn yet? lol
