The Pixie Cottage Challenge #36 Fruit Mellowness

For my design card for the Pixie Cottage I am using 3 Fall Mice Digital Stamp by ArTish.


I just fell in love with these 3 adorable mice that are playing in the pumpkin patch. I used my copics for coloring and shading and distressed the edges with colorbox chestnut chalk. My cute little mice were cut out and then paper pieced on top of another background image. I didn't add pop dots on this one as I only wanted a slightly raised edge. My papers are my Graphic 45 and Bazzill.

This week we have fabulous sketch from team member Adrina and I'm sure you'll agree it's a great one!We have the additional theme of Mellow Fruitfulness to go with the upcoming Autumn Season.
