PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE Sketch and or Double up

Stop by and join us for the PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE # 28. The double up challenge this week is quite simple. Two images, and a sentiment will count as one. I tweeked the sketch a bit and l have use a flower called greeting by artish. After watercoloring I added some orange stickles to the center for some sparkle and three dots on each side of the navy blue mat. I used the # nestie to cut out the flower and mat and a scalloped oval nestie for the sentiment and shadow. The green flourishes we cut out on the cricket for me by my SIL and stickles added to them. The buttons are so pretty if you could see them in person they are a dark matt navy blue but have the most beautiful sheen to them and they are from my button box. The three ribbon strips are some hand dyed seam binding and its all mounted on the wonderful creme paper with the orange diagonals that I made. I used some orange chalk to shade all around the edges.
