November Challenge

Welcome to November.

While I was researching ideas for this months challenge I came across the picture below from here
I was immediately drawn to it. I think it must be the little girl in me so your challenge is to be inspired by the picture

Here is what our amazing design team have produced to inspire you:
I struggled with this months challenge, fairies and delicate things are not really my thing so I decided to look at the colours and work with those. Rather than use a combiation of the colours I decided to pick one and see what I could do with it, the card above is the result!
I started by using a map stamp as a background and used a mask so the images didn't overlap with Distress Ink pad Bundled Sage. I used stamps from Stampers Anonmous and Indigoblu for the main images in DI Peeled Paint. I am pleased with the result as it makes a great card for a man and I always struggle with men!

I love the inspirational picture for this month's challenge because I love fairies! I was inspired by the colours, the berries, and of course the sweet fairy. 
I went with the fairy theme, as I just love these silohuette fairies, and there is some purple in there too. 

I used the colors from the inspiration photo for my layout, and added some of Kerry's wonderful flowers as embellishments!

  I was inspired by the Fairy because I call my Mom my Housefairy, so I decided to make a double page for my art journal.  I've used the colours to decorate my fairy.

I was inspired by the beautiful fairy and the colour combo, I have used Rainbow Fairy from Some Odd Girl you can find her Here, the papers I have used are basic grey and I used copics to colour her skin and promarkers for everything else
