Cosy Colouring

Morning all.  Are you feeling all Autumnal yet?  This week's Challenge at Make My Monday got me in that way.  Strange really as it's not an autumnal image.  Alli has chosen this pretty image for a colour challenge:

I'm not really one for a colour challenge.  Not sure why but I gave this my best shot.  I think I was partially influenced by an embossed piece that I'd inked with two of the main colours.  I'd done it for another challenge and then didn't used it.  As the colours were right I used it as my starting point.  The pattern reminds me of a knitted jumper so I dug out an adorable image from 2 Cute Ink ( I tried to link but the Etsy shop is down as I write this).  I gave him a cosy green jumper and a hot chocolate in Costa colours. I suppose I could have gone pink with the jumper and given him a Starbucks instead.  It has to be hot chocolate as I'm not a coffee lover, unlike my hubby who is so obsessed he has a hand grinder to grind beans when we go camping!

What do you think?  I'm not sure if I should colour the greetings strip or leave it white.  Now, I'm off for a hot chocolate.

Please join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.

  7. Love this little digi you used and I love this color combo. It has finally cooled off here in NC but I don't think it will last. I, too, prefer hot chocolate over coffee.
