Crisp sunburnt leaves...

Good morning! 

With fall officially upon us I just had to print off this gorgeous Spirit of Autumn digi from Some Odd Girl and get her on a card. At first I couldn't decide what color her hair should be so I challenged myself to create a fall ombre effect from brown all the way down to golden yellow at the ends. I'm pretty happy with the final results, at least it mimics the changing leaves on the train of her gown quite nicely. When it came time to color a quick background I made sure to make the tall grass sway in the same direction as her wind blown tresses to really sell that illusion of a crisp, autumn breeze. I found the sentiment in an older 6x6 paper pad from Simple Stories and it couldn't have been more perfect. All in all I had a lot of fun coloring this one up. :)

Ok then, hope your week is off to a great start!
