The Friday Coloring 'Color/Photo Inspiration' Challenge

We have another color/photo inspiration challenge for you this week. And our palette is a really pretty one for autumn/Thanksgiving, so you could take advantage of that for this month's holiday cards. I have used an image for my card that I have had for many months. It is not an image by our monthly sponsor, but I will use that image at the end of the month. Speaking of which:

Our November sponsor is a really fun one. Vera Lane Studio. She sponsored us last year with her darling images. She is offering a digi set for the prize this month. Do check out her Etsy shop for her digi sets. 

OK, my image this month is Aurora Wings Tempest of Ice. I printed it on X-Press It BC, as usual, and colored it with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:
Skin: E000, E01, E11
Hair: E21, E23, E27
Wolves: E42, E44, E47, E49, E02, E08, E09
Clothing: E02, E08, E09, TTYR133, TTYR33, TTYR24, G40, G43, G46

I used DP from the Basic Grey Life of the Party collection and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I also chose to add some die cuts to the scene, which were made with Lawn Fawn Spring Showers dies. That's about it.

This is quite short for me. Many of you will cheer. Some of you may be bummed. I apologize to those of you who expected something funny today. I am not depressed, but so thoroughly invested in reading right now, that I am not taking the time for writing. Perhaps next week. 

In the meantime, please check out the fab creations by my talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Vannessa! Then hand-color up an image, using our palette, and play along with us!

Have a great weekend! And, go Cards!
