Hot inside and cold outside!

Hello my lovelies.
Well, here we are in November - crikey 8 more weeks and the Big Man will have been and gone!
Don't know where this year has gone to - really I don't.
So, time once again for a new challenge at Through the Purple Haze.
This time our fabulous sponsor is:
KennyK shop badge
For this challenge I have used Blair Blaze
So the theme is hot inside and cold outside right?
So I couldn't resist colouring her like flames:
I have used my Polychromo pencils for this image - I love how the waxy pencils blend together so beautifully.
The background is made using a Clarity 9 x 11 stencil called Treescape Stencil
Originally I was going to make a card, but after printing and colouring the image I decided she was too big for a card so decided to go a bit mixed media and do a canvas.
I placed a moon stencil behind the trees but I think I was a bit heavy handed with the stencil brush because you can hardly see it.
I spritzed the ink with water to make it look like snow and added stickles glue along the grass lines.
I added the little owl in the top corner (a) to make it a bit more interesting and (b) because I think he is cute! Lol
So there you have it - my mixed media hot inside cold outside canvas.

Hope you can find time to pop in and join in with the challenge - I know it is getting busier around about now but it would be lovely if you could.
