Are you all ready for a new Pixie Cottage challenge today?? We have
a sketch and/or theme you can use. Today the theme is paper piecing.
The team has some wonderful examples so head on over and join the fun.
I have used one of the delightful Hannah images. I paper pieced her boots
and her umbrella. I popped the edge of the umbrella slightly for a little
more dimension. After water coloring her I cut her out with a
Spellbinder label # . Using alcohol inks I made the mat for a stormy
look then ran thru the dotted swiss folder to mimic raindrops.
The flower was made using some of the inked paper and some
of the SU that I pieced the umbrella with. It was run thru the
SU basket weave folder. The edging is made with a MS
arched punch. All is matted onto a dp that had little circles
all over it reminding me of water.

Entering Challenges:
Scrapalicious: April Showers
Papercraft Star: Use an umbrella
Victorine Stamps: April Showers
Papertake Weekly: April Showers

Sadly this is my last post with Passionately Artistic.
The time has come to say goodby. I must lighten the load a bit.
I have so enjoyed being on Maggie's talented team and hope
you will continue to join in their challenges. Today I have
made simple a man card for one of the grandsons up coming
birthday. Pretty simple using this beautiful majestic eagle
image I have had forever. It was lightly colored so I just darkened
it all up a bit then cut the wing out. A little layering, buttons, string
and sentiment says it all.

Entering Challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Ribbon or Twine
Shopping Our St
ash: Masculine
Love to Create: Happy Birthday
