The Pixie Cottage Challenge & Passionately Artistic Challenges

The Pixie Cottage Post...

Here it is Wednesday again and time for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage. Our theme is dark & Spooky and there is also a sketch you can choose to use. I used Michelle's spooky tree background image and the sketch. The image was water colored with some stickles added to the clouds. The background was darkened with chalk. The black was embossed with a dotted swiss folder and mounted on the dp. I drew the bat, spider and web to fit in the three little squares then foam dotted them on and tied the sentiment on with a strip of cheesecloth. Be sure to stop on by and join us.

Entering Challenges:
Shopping Our Stash: Spooky or Orange & black
Woodware: Anything goes

This post is for Passionately Artistic

A little gift box made from piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper.It folds up into a perfect
little gift box to fill with treats and treasures. Some stiff plastic covered
wire wrapped around dowel for a handle.

Using a SU scalloped punch on
one edge I made two rosettes flowers adding different centers to each one. The top trim was made with a black piece punched with a SU scalloped punch, the periwinkle punched with the MS daisy punch and a
little white strip added. The big sheer periwinkle bow and leaves were added to the top and a button to the one on the box. Quick and a fun way to give a little gift.
