The theme for this week at The Pixie Cottage is Clean & Simple,
we also have a sketch , your choice.
Im not especially good at any one style but I find C&S particularly difficult.
I used a cuttlebug folder to emboss the background. I thought the simple South
End Girl really lended itself to the C&S style. I water colored her and then matted
her on the yellow. The yellow tab was used to attach the image. A simple
sentiment finishes it. The team has some wonderful inspiration so be sure to
stop on over and visit.
Entering Challenges:

Sentimental Sundays: Dry embossing
Divas by Design: Anything goes

The Passionately Artistic Challenge
We have a new Linking Party today so stop by to join us.

I have several albums I need to make so this is cover for one of them.
After water coloring the cute little dancing Claudias I matted on the pale yellow.
After stitching around the borders I stitched on the embossed center strip
and the two borders. Layered stars for embellies and the sentiment
completes it. The border is Paper Trey Ink and the stars
and sentiment are Spellbinders.
