PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE


For The Pixie Cottage Challenge we are looking for paper piecing! This is a fun technique so if you havent tried it before today is the day. This flower and hummer image is by Artish. You can find it and many more at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. After stamping the image twice I water colored, adding twinkling H2Os on the hummer for shimmer and cut out the hummer wing, tail and some of the flowers. The are foam dotted on to add some paper pieced dimension. Used the I rock to attach the little studs on the sentiment. A little stitching and a flourish dotted with stickles finish it off.

Davi,

This image is similar to the one I just did for my mom's MD card. Hummingbirds are so sweet and you did a really great job on this one with the trumpet flowers.

Hugs, Martha
