Pink Gem Designs Guest Designer for November

I am proud to say that I was asked to a Guest Designer for
Pink Gem Designs again!
The theme this month is
"Purple and Turquoise"
and I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas card using this non-traditional colour combination...
By leaving a little area underneath Rudy's eyes I was able to give him an adorable expression!!!
His bobbly fur was created using the dotty method - it's great fun to do, really easy, just build up the colours by layering dots of colour instead of blending traditionally - give it a try!
