Eggplant, Pumpkin and Avocado


"Eggplant, Pumpkin and Avocado" is the theme over on the Gingersnap Creations blog this week. Right from the moment I read the theme for this challenge, I knew exactly what I was going to do - not the most complex of cards, certainly, but I knew that David would look striking in these 3 colours!

Colour was provided courtesy of Promarkers - I had ones called eggplant and pumpkin, but I couldn't for the life of me find an avocado one (which surprised me, as I have all of the colours so maybe I've misplaced one? I used moss instead, which, for all I know, might grow on avocado trees, so let's keep it as our secret!). The glow around the shadow of the head was achieved using the Promarker blender pen to lighten the eggplant background.

Pop over to the GC blog to see how the other DT members have interpreted the challenge - go on, you know you want to! :)
