Another Preview

Oh you girls are getting impatient to get your mitts on our new Pixie collection! Certainly that seem to be the case judging by the reaction on Dottie's World and Delectable. Did you notice something different by the way? I said "Pixies" instead of "Fairies". We decided that Fairies perhaps brought with it an image of old ladies cutting decoupage sheets (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with old ladies - I'm getting there myself!), so it's a little mixture of pixies and faeries (notice also the different spelling, which conquers up images of woodland creatures I think rather than lavender and mothballs), so faerie rather than fairy from now on, alongside pixies...

I joined two pixies, designed by our lovely Lou, on this card: Thistle and Daisy. I designed a little toadstool for Daisy to sit on:

This is the lovely Thistle:

... and here is Daisy

Sorry for all the pictures, I take so many and never know which ones to use! I kept chopping of Thistle top petals in most of the pictures.

I tried using a blue background to emulate a summer sky, I like the richness of colour it brings.

Here is what I used on my card:
Stamps: Pixie collection from Charmed Cards & Crafts (available soon).
Papers: AC PLain cardstock
Embellishments: K&Co Citronella flowers and yellow crystals. Llewelyn-Bowen leaf Retro Rose leaf ribbon. K&Co Wild Raspeberry border. PLain pearls coloured green with a Copic marker
My images were coloured in using Copics.

Thanks for visiting my little corner of blog land ♥

Fantastic card! I like the idea that they are pixies too, it gives them a magical yet mischieveous air! Wow, that must have been some cutting out on Thistles headwear!! xx
