Pixie Alert!

The title of this post is totally obscure, but I spent a little time using the new Nature's Little Helper by Mable Lucie Attwell yesterday, and so wanted to add flower petals where the daisy is. I stamped the pixie onto a distressed background on one of the Maya Road Chipboard Houses, and then masked the pixie, to add the stamps ( Houndstooth and Chicken Wire) in distressed inks.
I painted the pixie in distress inks by wetting the brush and smooching the ink on my non stick craft sheet, and picking up the colour. You can get a good amount of colour to paint this way. Crystal Stickles went on the wings..love this effect! For the flower, I coloured up in distress ink ( painting them the same way) a white flower from Prima. A yellow button added the finish.


Let me know what you think. All answers on a postcard to... lol
