A Pixie Post

Hi all,

Well, as you may have read, I have been lucky enough to go to Bellaland a few times to participate in the colouring classes that Lindabella and Paulabella put on.  It doesn't matter how much practice I get, I always love to learn something new.  And they are MASTERS at what they do.

So, this card is one that I really liked, that I wasn't able to complete in the class. 
Have you seen all of the pixies that Em has in the store?  They are all so whimsical and fun - I love them.  Hard to choose, really.  But Linda chose one image from the Pixies Set A to use on the card for everyone.

Here it is:

The base is white, but I don't know what the patterned papers are - they were pre-cut for everyone prior to the class, so I don't know where they came from.  Love the colours though.  I added black mats to a couple layers and I added some black zig zag stitching with my Janome Sew Mini machine.  I popped some pink Martha Stewart pearls on to the corners as well. 

The pixie was also pre-stamped for us, but you can pretty much bet it was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bella's Bestest Paper (we all love using that combo), and we coloured with Copics.  I added some shading with Prismacolor Pencils, and I added some glitter around her as well - gives it a magical touch. Finally, I sponged around the edges with Wheat Versamagic ink.

That's it for today.  Don't forget about this week's Bellarific Friday challenge: to add dimension to your card.  This one is so simple, so pull out any stamp you have from the Stamping Bella store, make sure something pops out, and send it to Em by Thursday night!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
