Pixie Cottage Challenge~~~Two Colors


Good Morning I hope your week is going well. The challenge today is 2 colors and I must say it was a real challenge for me. As you may have noticed I'm a color gal so limiting it to two was a stretch :) I debated on several combos and finally settled on the traditional B&W. This beautiful Pixie Cottage flower has lots of pretty detail so thought it was a perfect choice. It is one of those images that is beautiful colored or not. You will find it at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More plus many others. The name is Greetings and it is by our talented ARTish.

I stamped then went over it again with a dark marker so it would stand out. I cut it out and foam dotted it onto the scalloped oval back gound. Next is the oval I cut out with the scalloped nestie and using tiny pieces of foam to lift it up to create a frame for the flower. After I cut out two of the butterfly I ran them thru the dotted folder and then added stickles to the dots and put the layers together. Stitched, layered, punched and added the sentiment. Now be sure to stop by
The Pixie Cottage and check out all of the teams beautiful creations!
