Pixie Cottage Sketch #27 and Triple Play!


Welcome to this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge!
Today for my design card for this challenge I Used
Robins Nest by ArTish

I thought that this image was just perfect for this challenge. I love the fact that there were 3 eggs. I even used 3 pearls on each corner. I decided to color this image using watercolors. I have not done watercolors for some time. I really enjoyed painting this one to I will have to use watercolors more often! For my image I used my versamark ink pad and black embossing powder to stamp this lovely image onto watercolor paper. My card stock is by Basic Grey as well as bazzill. Flowers were colored with copics and are by prima. The lace was from my stash and had been given to me several years back. This image is just perfect for any occasion!




Along with the sketch we have the added option "Triple Play" which means we'd like to see something on your project 3 times! That means 3 flowers, 3 designer papers, 3 ribbons, 3 embossing folders, 3 buttons, anything as long as it's a trio!
You don't have to use a Pixie Cottage Stamp to enter but if you do have why not try out!
Remember you can use the sketch, the theme or both and can combine our challenge with any others you like!

One randomly picked winner will get their choice of 2 Pixie Cottage Stamps and the Design Teams Top Three entries will get to display the winners badge on their blog.
Winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of the challenge.
