The Pixie Cottage Challenge #104 - Embossing

It's time for a new Once Upon a Wednesday challenge at The Pixie Cottage and we have a super sketch and the optional theme challenge of "Embossing". You can use a light box and stylus, embossing powders and a heatgun or embossing folders, the choice is yours :)

The Crafty Pad - Sparkle (use glitter and gems)

Card Recipe:
Image and Sentiment set - Girly Girl Buffy by Alisa Ramirez
Paper - French Country Stack by DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Butterfly - Michaels
Lace - Hobby Lobby
Embossing Folder - Script by The Paper Studio

This is the great sketch we started with.

I did something a little different with this card and used London Fog Memento Ink stamped on to a very light pink paper instead of the usual Tuxedo Black and white paper. It gives a very different look when colored, my daughter thought I'd colored the image with chalks and couldn't believe that Copic markers could look this soft. I thought it went well with colors pulled out from the patterned papers. And finally I airbrushed the white flowers with a soft pink to make then match perfectly.
I hope you like this and will come over and play with us at The Pixie Cottage this week.

This is so pretty. Love how you have stamped onto light pink paper - it really does change the look of the colouring. Gorgeous papers too.
