PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE & PASSIONATELY ARTISTIC



Please scroll down for my Pixie Cottage post.

Wednesday brings Passionately Artistic's new linking party. Hope you will hop on
over and join in the fun with your special creations.
I have made a wall hanging for a dear friend/ former co worker who had bleeding
around her heart and had emergency surgery.
I wanted to make something with pretty spring flowers and hope for new season of good health. After cutting out the base I stitched around it and antiqued..even though
it doesn't really show up to well.

Next I stamped the flourishes with the SU doodle set and then used a stencil for the dotted areas.
The bird is a Stampin' Up die embossed with a script folder and then
antiqued.







The sentiment is cut out with a Stampin' Up alphabet and attached to the
dotted Spellbinder fancy tag. A little handmade flower attached to the corner.




The Scripture Philippians 4:7 was printed torn out and edges scruffed up and antiqued.
The key in the birds mouth is cut out of a piece of antiqued copper screen.
Thought it was cool the way you can see through it.
The key is a Paper Trey Ink die. Point of this part is that Jesus is
the key to peace in our lives no matter what is going on.



I made several different sizes of flowers using the peach and rusty colors. Using
some dotted dp I cut out leaves and and attached.
Lastly I dyed ribbon to match. Making a big scrunched bow and
hanger with it.





Entering Challenges.

As we do each Wednesday we offer a choice of a sketch and/or theme.

This sweet little duck image is found at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.
After water coloring I cut it out with a Spellbinder Scalloped oval. Then matted


on the Spellbinder Label #8 . The double punched edge was done
with a Fiskars eyelet punch. Some Stitching, a little punched flower
and the sentiment finish of my card.
