November Challenge reminder

Hey Crafty Friends, 

I'm back today to share another inspiration card for our November challenge over on the Color it, create it, show it off blog. You can find all the details on how to enter here.

It's anything goes, any image, any theme, we encourage all crafts! However if you would like to treat yourself to a new MyBesties image for the challenge you can do so here.

The image I'm using today is Reindeers Besties Doll 12 which can be found here. (Click any image to view it larger)

As always I've started with the image printed on alcohol marker friendly card stock and coloured using Spectrum Noir Tri-Blends, I also added a little Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the bow and bottom of the dress.

Colour combination:

Reindeer - Gold brown and Gold yellow blends

Hat + Dress - Light Green blend

Skin - Fair skin blend

Flowers, mug + Scarf - Dark Red blend

Now my idea was to have her looking like shes in the forest, relaxing with a hot drink with her reindeer friend. To start I blended a background of Candied Apple, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch distress inks over a Time for Tea Designs birch tree stencil using the Time for Tea beautiful blending brushes.

Pulling out my trusted Heffy Doodle stash for the Forest border dies. Cutting out some trees and blending some colour onto them using Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard seed distress inks. Whilst I have my dies to hand I die cut a grass section and the word Hello from Lawn Fawn die cuts, I cut the word out 3 times to layer up and give some depth.

And here we have it all stuck together 😊

Thanks for stopping by today for inspiration, I can't wait to see what you all come up with for the challenge.
