The Pixie Cottage Sketch # 59 and or SPRING!


  For my Pixie Cottage card this week I used my favorite stamp from Pixie Cottage called Robin's Nest by ARTISH.  This stamp is sooooo much fun to watercolor.  I used a total of  3 tombow markers for this card.  And it was sooooo easy to paint.  My cardstock was my favorite Bazzill & plaid Mindseye.  My hardware is by stampin up and ribbon is from my stash.


It's Wednesday so it means another challenge here at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "Spring" and we'd love to see those flowers, butterflies, even an Easter Bunny or two!



Remember 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.
