Pixie Cottage DT Card......



Hiya folks!

This is going to be a very brief post as I'm off out with the kids in a few minutes.

I just wanted to show you another Pixie Cottage DT card I've made using Ornery Kitten by the wonderfully talented Sandra Hammer...... this gorgeous stamp is available to buy here right now!

I used my lovely Woodware punch and emboss leaf to create the foliage...... there was a serious amount of scrunching and distressing carried out I can tell you, lol!! I then added little punched flowers and some small oak leaves from a MS punch. The image is coloured with my Poly and Koh pencils and the papers are Indian Summer by Basic Grey. I created the frame using a piece of paper from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses collection, which has been made to look like wood. The sentiment and sticky pearls are from my stash.

Hope you like...... I think I've used the image in such a way that shows it isn't just suitable for Halloween..... this is just a simple Autumn birthday card.

Have a great day and I'll be back to catch up with you all this evening..... toodles for now!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx

Great card Tara. I love the frame you have made and the flowers and foliage are gorgeous.

Hope you had a nice time with the kids. I took my daughter out this morning to the park, luckily she met a friend and I could sit and have a bit of a catch up session.

Hey Tara,

What a beautiful card! Love the way you've coloured it! I wish I had the time to do a card one of these days, but tomorrow my oldest is having her ankle operation. So I will be away the whole day. I stamped a lot of images to take with me to colour while waiting for Lisa to come back. Isn't that a great way of spending time?

Hugs,
Renata
