The Pixie Cottage Challenge #61
Welcome to a Once Upon a Wednesday, Pixie Cottage #61 Challenge. This week we are using my sketch, and I personally want to say that I had a really hard time incorporating the triangles! I really did not think I would be able to pull it off, but since I made the sketch, I had to give it a go. I really like how it turned out, but it was not easy for me. This weeks THEME is GREEN (color or a recycled item) and remember, you do have the option to use the theme and/or the sketch. Using a Pixie Cottage stamp is not a requirement, but I would like to ask you all to use them if you have them in your collection. It really makes my day when I see them in the gallery.
I chose Cassie as my Pixie Cottage stamp, and she is available at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I started off by rotating the sketch, and then embossed some flowers on the triangle in the center to add a bit of texture. To finish it off I added the heartfelt sentiment, and balanced the flowered DP by using my punches to create the flowered centerpiece. This card is being sent to a friend, and my hopes is that once it is received, it puts a dose of sunshine into her life.
I am so curious this week. I can not wait to see how inventive you all were with these triangles! I hope you had an easier go at it then I did. I promise from now on, NO triangles in my sketches LOL!
