Fur and feathers inspiration at Graph'It Colouring Challenge

Good morning my lovelies, another day off work for me so I'm one very happy bunny. Talking of happy bunnies, I'm rabbit sitting this week as my son and his girlfriend are sunning themselves in Egypt. Rolo has settled in a treat, he's sooooo friendly and sooooo cuddly I don't think I'm going to let him go home lol.
Anyway my card today is for our inspiration post at Graph'It Colour Challenge, you've still got a week to enter and our theme is 'Fur and Feathers'. As always there is fabby prize from our generous sponsor Your Creativity Store! You don't have to use Graph'It markers to enter but we love it when you do :-)

For my card I've used a bp from Lili of the Valley, the image is from Aurora Wings and its called 'Acorn Sprite riding on a squirrel', I just love this image! I've coloured it with my Graph'It markers - for a full list pop over to the Challenge blog. To create the fur effect I used lots of different colours and a flicking technique on the tail. Once I'd coloured the face I used Mix'It fluid on a piece of flannel and gently dabbed to create a furry effect.

I've added some raffia lace, lime green ribbon and lots of little flowers berries and an acorn cap. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, punched and layered over a spellbinders die cut, the little bark heart is from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: your favourite season 
(Autumn for me, love all the colours, fresh breezy walks with the dogs chasing leaves and the cosy dark evenings)
