Oh, Scarecrow!

Still doing fall cards here... not a leaf has turned in my yard yet... but when they start I'll be ready! This was for the OCC Sketch Challenge today...but it didn't quite turn out the way the sketch was supposed to be-- must print out the sketch! Anyway, I paper pieced the scarecrow's overalls and colored the rest with my Copics. A while back I had purchased some "rusty" wire... assuming it was faux rust... So I thought I would dig it out and use it with my scarecrow... is real rusted wire. Real RUST... I have left enough things outside in the rain, I know how to make rust. I paid money for rusty wire. I had rust dust everywhere. The brown panel also has vertical embossed lines I created with my Scor-Pal, but they don't really show in the picture.
