The Pixie Cottage Wednesday Challenge - Love

Hello fellow crafters and welcome to another Pixie Cottage Challenge ! It's round three for me as GDT for the Pixie Cottage Challenge. This weeks theme is LOVE ! How perfect with Valentines Day just around the corner! When I saw this stamps I knew it would be perfect for Valentine, it's called Valentine Hannah by Sandra Hammer . I decided to make an Easel-Card this time. I colored Hannah using Copics. The DP is from Basic Grey. Sentiments are from Whimsy (Love Letter Seal) and Magnolia. Dies & Punches I used are from Spellbinders, Magnolia and MS, EK Success and Marianne Design. Flowers and all other embellies are from my stash.   And because it is always difficult to fit easel cards into envelopes I made a matching box for the card. When I had all that done I thought how nice it would be to have a matching smaller box for a little gift or some candy to go with the card. And this is the set:   To decorate the heart on the box I used the Music Note stamp fr

The Pixie Cottage Wednesday Challenge - Coloring

Hello friends and welcome to another 'Upon a Wednesday Challenge' from the Pixie Cottage ! It is my second Wednesday today as a guests designer for The Pixie Cottage . This week we want you to use your favorite coloring technique and also have a sketch for you if you like using sketches! You can use both, the technique and the sketch or either one. For my GDT card I used Pepe Le Penguin as Le Chef by Alisa Ramirez. And as I have actually 3 favorite coloring methods (Copics, Distress Inks and Pencils) I used two of them on my  image. I colored  Pepe using pencils and OMS and also did some Copic airbrushing. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Birthday Letter Seals . DP is from Basic Grey's Marakesh collection. Flowers ribbon and lace is from my stash. I used Spellbinder dies, EK Sucess punch and a Marianne Design swirly leaf die. I cut the swirly leaves out using orqange CS and then colored the tips using the Copic airbrush system and a little darker orange. For a final
