Going For Gold at The Pixie Cottage!

It's another Wednesday challenge at The Pixie Cottage. This week's theme is Going for Gold.  There's also this wonderful sketch to follow.  As always, you can choose the theme, follow the sketch, or do both!  Hope you join us!
This week I decided to follow both theme and sketch.  I used Hannah at a Fence, by Sandra Hammer, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking.  Still need lots of practice, but I chose to color the image with Copics again.  It is layered on cardstock and gold vellum.  The background strips were embossed with a CB folder and layered over gold vellum background.  The flowers I made, and the leaves are from a Crealies die.  Added some gold Liquid Pearls to the corners of two of the panels. 

Stamps:  Hannah at a Fence from the Pixie Cottage.
Paper:  Sand CS (scrap from my daughter's wedding invitation), vellum, SU! CS.
Ink:  Memento, Copics, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories:  Handmade "Prima" style roses, Crealies CL CS 11 leaf die, Cuttlebug EF from Oriental pack, Liquid Pearls.

Sweet as Candy, Pixie Cottage #92

Time for another challenge at The Pixie Cottage!  As always we have two parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.  We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is Sweet as Candy.  I finally figured out how to merge digital images, and couldn't wait to use Mystical Mushroom digital image by ARTish, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking. 
Isn't that a cute image?!? It is a great background for the little fairy. The scene was colored with Copics. Added some Stickles to the swirlies.  I cut/embossed the scene with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles, layered on top of In Spades Penant.  DP is from Bearly Mine Designs.  Flowers and leaves are Marianne D dies.

Stamps:  Mystical Mushroom, The Pixie Cottage; Summary Fairy, The Greeting Farm.
Paper:  SU! CS, Bearly Mine Designs DP.
Ink:  Copics, Colorbox Queues.
Extras:  Stickles, Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles and In Spades Penant, Marianne D LR0111 and LR0150, flat back pearls.

Dark and Spooky at The Pixie Cottage

It's another Wednesday (yay, two more days till the weekend!), and that means another challenge at The Pixie Cottage.  Halloween is only a couple weeks away, and this week's challenge is Dark and Spooky.  There's also another great sketch  you can follow, or you can combine the sketch and the theme.  I chose to go with a simple card layout again this time.
I used this cute little Hannah Witch stamp, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.  She is colored with Copics.  I drew the moon around the witch, which is from Inkadinkado, and then added PearlEx in splotches.  The background was sponged with Distress Ink.  Background DP is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs.  Sentiment I printed from my computer. 

Stamps:  Hannah Witch from The Pixie Cottage, Halloween Trails by Inkadinkado.
Paper:  Neenah Solar White, digital paper from Bearly Mine Designs.
Ink:  Memento, Distress Inks.
Accessories:  PearlEx.

Fall Fun With The Pixie Cottage

Okay, I'm back in gear now, have my Pixie Cottage DT card ready.  This week's challenge at The Pixie Cottage is Fall Fun.  There's also a great sketch to follow, or you can do both theme and sketch. 

Isn't this a fun image!  It's a digital image by the wonderfully talented ArTish called Barnie's Fall Ride, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.  I colored it with Copics and cut the octagon shape by hand, sponged the edges with Colorbox Queues.  All the DP is from Prima First Blush collection.  The sentiment was printed off my computer, cut out with SU tag punch and attached on foam tape.  I followed this week's sketch and kept this pretty simple.

Stamps:  Barnie's Fall Ride digital image.
Paper:  Neenah Solar White, Prima First Blush, The Paper Studio.
Ink:  Colorbox Queues, Copic markers, Memento.
Accessories:  Foam tape, round studs. :)
