Pixie Cottage Challenge!

Welcome to the first Pixie Cottage Challenge of 2010! This week our very own Pixie Renata created a sketch for us to use. I loved this sketch and have used something like it in the past. It looks so detailed and yet is so easy to create. I really hope you will play along with us this week.
For todays Wish upon a Wednesday challenge I used the gorgeous Alisa Ramirez Image "Ballerina Fairy Taking a Ride". I just love the caterpillar, his cute chubbiness makes me giggle.
I painted my image with distress inks and popped the fairys head for added dimension. Her wings are covered in diamond Stickles for lots of sparkle!
The DP is K&Company and the Cardstock is Bazzil swiss dots.

I hope you feel inspired! I can't wait to see what you create this week.

Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge 7

Here we are's Tuesday! Skipping Stones Designs has a wonderful sketch for us this week. The sketch is from the creative genius of Amy Sheffer at Pickled Paper Designs. I love this sketch, it is simple, elegant and full of possibilities :)
For todays sketch I chose the "Healing Wings" set from Skipping Stones designs. I just love this set because it is so versatile. The set includes sentiments, two full butterflies and one side view.
For this card I used the side view. I adore the sentiment "Friends give color to our lives". It is very true and gave me inspiration for the card.
I used very muted background papers and cream rayon thread in the stitching. The only color on the card is the butterfly. I used Tim Holtz distress inks in Broken China, Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint to add life to the butterfly. I love the way it pops from the page just like your favorite friend!
Please come visit us at Skipping Stones Design and enter the challenge! I can't wait to see what you make!
