The Pixie Cottage Challenge #24 - Inside Out - Guest Sketch

It's time for another Once Upon A Wednesday at The Pixie Cottage and we have another fabulous Special Guest Sketch Artist and this time it's the super talented Jay Jay!

Along with the sketch we have the added option "Inside Out".
This time we want to see you decorate the inside of your card too or maybe make something that ties the inside and outside of your card together.
You don't have to use a Pixie Cottage Stamp to enter but if you do have why not try out!
Remember you can use the sketch, the theme or both and can combine our challenge with any others you like!

One randomly picked winner will get their choice of 2 Pixie Cottage Stamps and the Design Teams Top Three entries will get to display the winners badge on their blog.
Winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of the challenge.

Fussy and Fancy - Monochromatic and Wings

Card Recipe:
Image - Hannah on Stepping Stones

Medium - Copic Markers
Daisy and Butterflies punches - Martha Stewart
Embossing folder - Sizzix
Sentiment - Heidi Grace
Shimmer (on flowers) - Pssst! Sheer Shimmer Mist in Frost

Inside I colored another Hannah and cropped her down to fit my space.
This is a great technique to remember as it allows you to use larger stamps in smaller spaces.

I just love this image and the aqua tones are some of my very favorite so this was an absolute pleasure to create.
Please come over and join us at The Pixie Cottage this week!
