It's not October it's Octavia!

I'm really hoping that all of you can see this post cos if you can't it means I've completely messed up my blog! In my last post i mentioned that I thought it was odd that nobody was commenting on my work and that I'd discovered the reason for it was Google+. Basically Google+ comments will not allow anyone to comment on my posts unless they sign up for a Google+ account and to be honest I can't say that I blame anyone who doesn't sign up as it isn't a fabulous platform and if they have to use these methods to get people to sign up then I'm certainly not a fan! Anyhow I decided to leave the Google+ platform and they certainly don't make it easy, as I went to click leave they kindly informed me that all Google profiles will be deleted! Anyway, I decided that I'd leave anyway and see what happens - worse case scenario I have to start my blog up all over again! Hey ho!

Anyway enough of my moaning I'm here to tell you about the Graph'It Marker challenge this week which is AUTUMN COLOURS. Remember you don't need to use Graph'It Markers to enter, your project, it simply needs to fit the theme. You could win yourself some fantastic new pens if you're the lucky winner, so what are you waiting for? Get your entries in!

My inspiration card this week is using the beautiful Octavia from Polka Doodles. I coloured her with my GI's and then added a combination of a GI background and Distress Inks which I flicked lightly with water to give a faux bleach effect. I then added some Stickles for a bit of bling and glitz before assembling the card.
