The Pixie Cottage Challenge #72 - June 1st

Hi folks,

guess who has the honour of being a guest DT for "The Pixie Cottage Stamps" this month? That's right - little old me!!!

So, for the next four Wednesdays, I'll be featuring my take on the current challenge over the The Pixie Cottage Blog.

Here is a close-up view of this week's sketch 

The optional theme this week is "anything but a card".

I opted to go with just the sketch for my project this week.

Doesn't Sparkles look ready for summer to start? This fun, summery image from the Pixie Cottage is one of many images created by Artish. I thought it would be great paired with these cheerful papers from Echo Park Paper Co. And, to mimic the sparklers that are twinkling away in her hands, I decided to make a couple of paper pinwheels for my embellishment pieces.

card details:
  • finished size: 6x6 inches
  • image: digi Sparkles by Artish from The Pixie Cottage Stamps, coloured with Copic markers (E000, E00, E93, E04, YG63, YG67, YG17, BG11, BG13, BG45, BG49, Y06, YR04, YR18, E34, E57)
  • patterned papers: Echo Park Sweet Summertime
  • card stock: CTMH Ocean (textured)
  • buttons from my stash
Additional challenges for this card:
Be sure to pop over to the Pixie Cottage Blog to see what the rest of the regular DT have created for you this week - and to link up your own creation! Remember, you can use either the sketch, the theme or both! And, you don't have to use Pixie Cottage images - but if you've got them, why not?

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to come back next Wednesday to see my next project as a guest DT for the Pixie Cottage Stamps.

Sorry Sheena - I completely misread your name on the challenge post - must be too tired. Sorry.
