Hello fall...

Good morning!

So I've been playing along in the latest 12 Days of coloring challenge over in the Some Odd Girl Facebook group for the past week and as we near the end of it I really wanted to get one of my colored images onto an actual card. Kristy is so cool and always treats participants to a special sale sometime during the challenge and I picked up this fun guy in my recent purchase. Leaf Rider Tobie has been on my digi wish list since he was first released, the joy and excitement in his face just can't be beat! And I just love the visual of a fairy hopping on a falling leaf and going along for the ride. Perhaps it's the changing of the season, with the arrival of cooler nights and shorter days, that had me thinking of fall leaves turning and dropping to the ground when I went to print Tobie out. I always associate that image with multiple leaves floating through the air so of course my mind went to creating a whole brigade of leaf flying fairies. I took advantage of the png files and did some digi merging, shrinking each one down to make them look further and further in the distance. And when I went to color them, I didn't worry about the colors being as distinct and shaded on the two in the back in comparison to the leader and focal point. you will also notice that I took some creative license and colored in some long flowing locks on that last fairy, easily turning her into a girl. Talk about a fun card, this one was a blast to create! ;)

Such a fun card! Love how you altered a single image to make a whole scene.
I don't follow you on social media and couldn't find any links on your blog to your social media accounts so I guess I'll never know what your big news are :(
