MyBesties - November Challenge

Hey Crafty Friends,

1st of the month means a new challenge on our Color it, Create it, Show it off challenge blog. All our challenges are always anything goes! 

You can find all details on how to enter our challenge here.

You are not limited to using MyBesties images in your projects however if you would like to treat yourself to a new image for the challenge you can do so here.

For my inspiration card today I am using the Reindeer Besties doll 1 which you can find here. The design is quick, clean and simple and would be perfect for a quick festive holiday card. As always all product links can be found at the end of my post.

Starting with the image printed on alcohol marker friendly card stock and coloured it up using Spectrum Noir Tri-Blends. (Click any image to view larger) 

Colour combination:

Hat and deer scarf: Blue Turquoise blend

Hair: Gold Brown and Gold Yellow blends

Skin: Fair Skin blend

Scarf and Trousers: Dark Red blend

Top: Green Turquise blend

Deer: Red Brown and Gold Brown blends 

I used a white signo uniball gel pen for the white patches over the image.

Reaching into my stash of dies and embossing folders, I decided to use Heffy Doodle Ovally Excited dies alongside an embossing folder that has a snowflake look. I embossed into some white card stock and then die cut using the largest oval from a glitter card stock and the slightly smaller one to die cut the oval from the embossed card.

For the sentiment I decided to add a little dimension to the card by using the Heffy Doodle Banner die with the coordinating roundabout sentiments stamp set. 

Tip: I find it easier to die cut the banner from the chosen card stock and then using Heffy Doodle Memo Tape or a washi tape could work to place the banner back in the card stock it was cut from making it easier to stamp with my MISTI the sentiment in the right place!

Using a Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment, added a few sequins and this quick clean and simple card is ready for a recipient this upcoming holidays!

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration, I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
