Timeless Tuesday on Wednesday...oh well !

Well I'm back to my old lazy ways of doing the Tuesday challenge on Weds. ...yea I know I have like a whole week but I'm still battling the dry wall dust and will be for another few days sooo...
everything is delayed. I used Flourishes Gerbera set and once again I took a rebellious attitude and made these little guys into chrysanthemums because...it's Autumn and I love the fall line of colors. I think they colored up nicely as mums ( not dads but mums). I added the phrase Autumn which is a Hero Arts stamp. I stamped in onyx black ink and used my colored pencils and decided to add a bit of chalk to tone down the brightness of the white card stock. Followed the sketch to a tee or is that T but I know it's not tea cause I drink a lot of that ( get that from my Mom not mum, as she was French Canadian and loved her tea). Anyway just did some coloring some matting some chalking and fini. Hope you have a great Wednesday ( another crazy spelled word...I would delete the D if I were Mr. Webster). Got to get back to the dust fields but will see you Friday.

Yeah, Pat! Your coloring is just fabulous!!! I am so glad you are rebeling against the traditional and spicing the Flourish bouquets up a bit. They are SO much better your way! Cute cherry card, too. Hope the ice cream was yummy. And I hope we have ice cream weather til well into November!!
