The Heart Desires Challenge #7

Hello everyone! I'm back with another challenge for the The Heart Desires Store Blog. Here's this month's inspiration image.
Isn't it just gorgeous! I just love those colors and how beautifully they go together! You could either take inspiration from the images or the colors or both. Remember you don't have to use products from the store to participate.
Here's what I came up with.
Neat and Tangled and avery elle "Season's Greetings" card
I created the background using the colors from the inspiration image with Gansai Tambi watercolors. I used a leftover strip of the watercolor background for the sentiment.
The gorgeous deer image is from Avery Elle which I've colored with Copic markers. The circle background is the leftover die cut from a Gina Marie reverse scalloped circle die.
Link up your awesome creations here. Looking forward to seeing your creations!

The Heart Desires Challenge #6 Mid Month Inspiration

Hello everyone! I am back with the mid month inspiration for The Heart Desires Challenge #6. 
 We hope you're inspired by the pic and sketch and will have loads of fun using the colors, creatures and manimals, or the sketch in your projects.  You have until November 30 to join in.  While you're at it, please tag us on Instagram!  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
Here's what I made for the challenge. 
Altenew coffee love

No manimals on my card, I followed the sketch and the colors. On hind sight I think a coffee cup stain marks watercolor background would have looked better than the patterned paper background, but this will have to do for now!
