Inspired by a Song

Hello peeps,
Wow can't believe another fortnight has passed and it's time once again for a Basic Grey Challenge. This fortnight the theme is 'Inspired by a Song' so once again a very open theme.
I have chosen to use the gorgeous 'Autumn' from Saturated Canary and my song choice is 'Autumn Leaves' sung by many artists including Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole to name a few.

The stunning DP's are from the Pyrus collection by Basic Grey and boy have I gone to town with the Frantage!! First I coloured my yummy image in with Promarkers and then used Shabby White around the image and sentiment (just love this look) and the doily die cut I covered with Aged Taupe and a little sprinkling of Shabby White.

As I fell in love with the Passion for Promarkers challenge theme 'Doodleicious' I wanted to play along so I added faux stitching lines around all edges using my fine nib on my Olive Green Promarker. I did like how subtle it looks on patterned DP's.
Finally here is a little close up of 'Autumn' and that wonderful Frantage.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
The Sketchy Challenge - #47 'Sandy's Sketch'
Passion for Promarkers - #198 'Doodleicious'
Fussy and Fancy - #89 'Pearls and Lace'
Cupcake Crafts - #242 'Lots of Layers'
ABC - 'N is for Not Just One' (I used lace, flowers and pearls)

Big Hugs
