It's time for another Once Upon A Wednesday Pixie Cottage Challenge. This week we have a super sketch for you to try and the theme is Let It Snow! As always you can use the sketch and/or the theme, it is left up to you. Please note: You do not have to use a Pixie Cottage stamp to enter, but it is always very nice to see you use them, it actually brings a smile to my face when you do!
I used this scrumptious Basic Grey paper and this wonderful Sweet Treat Pixie Cottage Stamp that I received from Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. She keeps getting more stock as each day passes, so be sure to drop in and see what delicious newness she is posting.
I tried to match the colors from the snowmen paper to the colors in the image. Once I colored the image in, I took a Sizzix embossing folder and added texture to it, trying to emulate a snowstorm. It was my first time attempting this technique, and I think I will do it again. Instead of flowers, I took matching design paper, punched out snowflakes, embossed them with kaleidoscope powder, and placed them on my card. Putting a "Make your Own Brad" in one of the centers.
What you do you think? Criticism is always appreciated, as I love learning.
