Tilda's Town Challenge #121 - Anything Fall


Actually, I love color in general but I do lean toward bold, fall colors.  My living room and kitchen are painted pumpkin butter, the couch is cranberry red, the recliners are a kind of mossy green and I have bold blue, deep red, gold, brown and orange accents.  I even have a large, red cabinet in the kitchen that holds my cookbooks.  So pretty much all of the colors in my card are in my main living areas.  LOL!
This is Tilda with Cock-A-Doodle-Doo The Rooster.  I have colored this pair with Copic markers, shaded and highlighted with colored pencils and inked everything with Distress Inks.  I cut the cornstalk and fence with the Cricut, the doily, pumpkins, corn and "welcome" are QuicKutz and the grass is a punch by Fiskars.

 Copics used:  Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20  Hair - E33, E35, E37, E50  Dress - BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78, Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y15  Chicken - YR21, YR24, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y21, Y28  Seed Bag - Colored Pencils  Seed - Y15, Y21, Y28, E31

This is Calista Flockheart, egg layer extraordinaire and greeting card model.  She's looking very shabby at the moment with molting season upon us but it was her coloring that I wanted to mimic for the image.  Molly Hatchit is the shy one hiding behind her.  She will have her chance to model soon.  :)
