The Pixie Cottage #42 Guest Sketch/Metal



Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

Normally I write up my blog post a few days ahead but I've been busy the past few days and had to quickly write my post tonight. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to finish my post because at the moment, we are experiencing some very nasty weather. What started out as a nice day turned dark and rainy and from there very high winds and power outages. We have lost our power twice already and the weatherman is forecasting more nasty weather for Wednesday! Yikes... once again I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that we don't lose anymore power.


Today's Pixie Cottage Challenge is the usual sketch and this weeks theme is METAL. Our lovely sketch was designed by the very talented Penny and I thank her for the inspirations. The name of my image is "A Little Witch In All Of Us" and she is currently on sale at The Pixie Cottage. The design paper is by SU and I believe that SU has since retired it. My image is colored in with Copic Markers and the sentiment is a Halloween sticker that I have had for ages. Originally I had embellished my card with plain black buttons but the buttons seemed to fade into the background. To give the buttons some contrast, traced over same size buttons and added some stripes.

Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!
