Pink Pixies


I just {{{LOVE}}} these cute little pixies!

The stamp is from Stampendous and it's called Mistletoe Pixies .

I stamped on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored with Tombow markers and a Tombow blender pen, then punched out with a Marvy Mega circle punch. The pink layer behind the pixies was punched with a Marvy Giga Scallop Circle punch, and the red layer behind the pink scalloped layer was punched with a Marvy Giga Circle punch.

I used my anywhere hole punch to punch out circles in each of the scallops on the pink layer. (I haven't mastered my Crop-A-Dile yet. I really think I'm Crop-A-Dile challenged!) The reason for the red Giga circle layer is so that the red cardstock would show through the punched holes.

The layer that the ribbon is on is a strip of red cardstock scalloped with my corner rounder punch. The ribbon is from my stash. And I can tell you it is NOT May Arts ribbon. It's not that nice! I know that because of the texture. It must have been on sale somewhere when I bought it!

The sentiment is Stampendous Ho! Ho! Ho! . The background for the sentiment is A Muse Artstamps Lacy Oval inked with VersaColor Opera Pink ink. I cut out the Lacy Oval then used Foam Mounting Tape to give it dimension.

The designer paper is from KI Memories. I'm not sure it's really Christmas paper but hey...it works! :-)

I hope I covered everything. But if I missed something don't hesitate to email me.

Thanks for checking in. I so appreciate your stopping by!
