It's time for another fabulous tutorial from The Pixie Cottage team and this one was created by the very talented Peggy of Beautiful Greetings!
She's showing us all how to watercolor with Distress Inks and I for one will be getting out my paintbrushes this afternoon to give it a go!
Also on The Pixie Cottage news, Michelle has recived so many new stamps in the last couple of weeks and they are all so super cute! You've seen 2 of my cards using them already this week and here's the trifecta!
Cupcake Crafts want Friends/Friendship
Crafty Calendar want Love/Friendship
Rosie Dees had a Friendsip theme too
Cuttlebug Spot wanted to see the Double Embossing technique (they have a great video showing how to do this over there)
Lord Have Mercy had a sketch that worked great with the embossing technique
Sophisicats wanted Embossing
Incy Wincy want Touchy Feely!
Peachy Keen had a recipe. Must contain Green and Yellow, a 3D object/embellishment and a stamped image
Copics Colour Challenge had the combo of YG03 Yellow Green, Y17 Golden Yellow and C7 Cool Grey #7
Paper Garden wanted to say Farewell to Winter
Image - Spring Friends at The Pixie Cottage
Paper - DCWV The Citrus Stack
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Paper Lace Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - The Paper Studio for Hobby Lobby

Inside is more of the wonderful dp and a message mat.
Here is a close up showing that double embossing technique. You can see the video tutorial for this Here.
It's hard to show in the photo as the mat is white but I hope you can see both the Swiss Dots embossing and the edge embossing from the Nestability.
I nearly gave up on this technique as I couldn't get it right and then I spotted my mistake and it worked wonderfully!
Be sure to check out all the wonderful new designs that Michelle has in the store right now, perfect for your Spring crafting!
And also remember the latest challenge (a new sketch) is still going on over at The Pixie Cottage and we'd love to see your entry over there!
