This Halloween image is Autumn right? Well it is in my world! I love the tones of the purples and lilac in Graph'It - purples are colours I never ever seem to use in my colouring or crafting so when it gets round to this time of year it makes a nice change for me...
I apologise because I totally forgot to write down the colours I used on this but I know for sure her cloak was done with the Pink Greys!
