Wednesday means another great challenge at The Pixie Cottage! This week's theme is "Love and Kisses". There is also the great sketch you can follow. Go with the theme or the sketch, or do both! I used this gorgeous digi image from the Pixie Cottage, called "A Bloom and Her Trio" by , available at Michelle's Scrapbooking. I was in a tinkering mood, so printed the image onto regular copy paper, then quick colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I spritzed the image with water and then smeared it around with my fingers. When it was almost dry, I sponged on some Distress Ink all around the image. I layered a piece of vellum over the image to give it a soft focus look, and cut both layers with Spellbinders Twelve. I cut the doily and inked the edges with Distress Ink. Put all the layers down, added the butterflies and the lady silhouette cutout.
