Scottish Maggie with flowers

It's time for another Pixie Cottage challenge and today we're joined by an uber-talented guest designer - Jacques. Jacques has created a fantastic sketch for us, and the theme is 'floral frenzy'. If you're joining in with the challenge remember you don't have to do both the sketch and the theme, one or the other will be fine.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Die Cut Dreams - Make Your Own Flowers - (the multi coloured ones and the 'grape hyacinths' have been made by me)

Pollycraft Challenge - Make Your Own Flowers - (the multi coloured ones and the 'grape hyacinths' have been made by me)

Today I've used The Pixie Cottage Stamp - Girls of The World, Scottish Girl Maggie by Lisa Schmidt. I've coloured her with distress inks (Dusky Concorde, Pine Needles, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Walnut Stain). I also added a little Stickles Glitter Glue
to highlight the tartan and the flower on her hat.

I made the rainbow coloured flowers by punching two different sizes and colouring them with Brilliance ink pads. The edges were inked with Walnut stain and glittered with stickles. The 'Grape Hyacinth' type flowers are just small beads glued to some wire. I love making these now because they add so much dimension to a card.

Please take a look at the wonderful creations by the rest of the talented DT and oogle at the gorgeous one that Jacques created for us too.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
