Summer Nights at The Pixie Cottage

Summer nights is the theme at The Pixie Cottage this week.  We also have a great sketch to follow too.  Either/or, it's up to you...come join us!I usually follow both theme and sketch, but this week I chose the theme.  I used Hannah on Bench, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking.  Even though it's blazing hot here and she's wearing long sleeves, I'm imagining Hannah in a Vermont summer night setting.  My daughter is about to start her senior year of college up there, and she said the nights have been in the 50's already.  I colored Hannah with Copics; still need lots more practice with them.  Cut the image with Spellbinders oval dies and added the sunset "glow" with Distress Ink.  All DP is Graphics 45.  The flower was made using Spellbinders Rose Creations, then glitzed up with German Glass Glitter.
