The Pixie Cottage Challenge #44 Sketch and or Use of Only 2 Colors



  For my Pixie Cottage Design Card this week I chose to use Spring Time Hannah With Butterflies by Sandra Hammer as my image.  I just love the beautiful butterflies.  Spring is such a favorite time of year for me.  I used papers from my stash.  I colored her with my new watercolor pencils that I recently received as a birthday present.  (Ahhh my friends and family are enablers!).  Flowers are by Prima.
We have another fabulous sketch for you and it gives you a lot of scope for adding your own twist to it.


In addition to the sketch we have the optional challenge of using just 2 colors on your project. You can use different shades of the same color but just two main color families.
As always you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!
The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. The winner and the Top 3 favorites will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends.
Please get those supplies out and join us for another fun week at the Pixie Cottage!

Drunken Stampers - Punch Me

Iris's - Anything Goes
Ellephantastic - Blue
Flourishes - Glitter: blouse and brads
