The latest challenge over at Do it with Digis is Fairies, Pixies and Elves. I had to hunt around all my digi images to come up with something nice for this card and I found a lovely mushroom house and a baby which I think looks remarkably like a pixie. Unfortunately I don't know where either of them came from and I do wish that artists would actually include their name on the downloadable images.
I first copied and pasted the two images into Word and then printed them out. I have used a set of nesties to die cut the image leaving the little pixie outside the frame. I left the images inside the die and sponged some Shabby Shutters Distress Ink around the edge. This was then coloured in using Promarkers and matted onto the larger size die cut. I printed out the mushroom house again and cut out the image leaving the negative space which I then sprayed Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Iridescent through. Unfortunately when I looked at the photo this spray doesn't show up very well at all which is a shame. The backing papers and border strip are from NitWit Collections Cotton Candy Kisses which was a free giveaway with a magazine and I joined the two pieces with a border strip of bazzill card punched with Martha Stewart Wild Flowers deep edger punch. I added a button and ribbon bow. The sentiment comes from Crafts4fun.nl and I used my Stampin Up oval and scalloped oval punches.
