Variegated Fall Fun

What a fun challenge Julia presented us today on SCS.....variegate it! My whole card started with my little crocheted flower that I made out of variegated embroidery floss....
I also decided it would be fun to make my jewel flourish variegated..so out came my airbrush system from copic. I took the main colors that I used in my image to spray my jewels. (Y21,Y26,YR65).
My image was colored on white paper, then I sprayed the whole paper (when done coloring) with my E11 marker and added touches of Y26 to the areas of shadow (the right side of my image)
I wanted to show you a close picture of this cute scarecrow's outfit. I colored it and then added texture with my blender pen (giving a little crosshatching look).
Here are all my stamp and supply deets:
Stamps:
Autumn Trees (Kim Hughes Collection) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Rich Cocoa Memento (Tsukineko)
Paper:
Earth Love (Cosmo Cricket)
White (Neenah)
