Spring is in the air at the Pixie Cottage!

Today at the Pixie Cottage we are celebrating Spring with another Pixie Cottage Showcase! Make sure to take a peek at all of the DT's cards because there are some adorable new stamps being introduced.
My card today features two pixie cottage stamps. I used the beautiful "Stump&Bench" stamp by the uber talented Sandra Hammer, to create the background. I then cut out Alisa from the adorable "Alisa in Wonderland" stamp by the fabulous Alisa Ramirez. Doesn't she look so cute sitting on the bench!? I got this idea from a fabulous tutorial that our very own Pixie DT member Renata did. You can check out that tutorial here.
I colored my images with Distress inks, Tombow Markers and an aquapainter.

Cardstock - Bazzil
