Outdoor Fun


Hi everyone! It's Wednesday which means a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage. As always, there is a new sketch to spark your creativity and this week's theme is outdoor fun.  I love cats and dogs and this fun Neh, Neh, Neh digital image by Pixie Cottage Stamps  really brings out the best of both personalities.

My card base is Dark Brown cardstock layered with PTI White then Cat Stripes patterned paper. I wanted to bring out a bit of orange so I added photo corners punched from Tangerine Tango. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. I sponged Bordering Blue for the sky and Certainly Celery for the ground then die cut and embossed the image using Labels 17 Nestabilities. I didn't have a sligthly larger die so I cut the Dark Brown mat by hand. To embellish the card I added a dew drop in each corner of the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
