our dear pixie-in-chief, kirsty vittetoe, has become quite the dab hand at creating fabulous papercrafting sketches for us to try out at pixie dust paperie, and here is her latest effort:
awesome, am i right? i love that it has loads of detail to get me started, but it's still totally flexible. so helpful, in fact, that it inspired one of the fastest cards i've ever made!!!
(patterned paper: tim holtz, prima; florals: recollections; diecuts: k&co; cardstock sticker: sass; rub-ons: ki + american crafts; pearls: prima; seam binding: pixie dust paperie; pen: copic outliner; inks: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, glue dots)
i am LOVING kraft as a background right now, and my tim holtz paper pad is officially an indispensible "go to" for card bases. the scalloppy sticker was leftover from the giant 12x12 sheet of sassafras that was in this month's LA DOLCE VITA kit, the seambinding is from the same source. the frame, tag and butterfly are all from a pack of diecuts i bought at michaels like a year ago; i still have plenty left, and i still ♥LOVE♥ them! and of course once i had assembled the "bones" of the sketch, it only needed a few finishing touches: a couple of florals, some tiny rub-ons, part of a pearl flourish, etc; and i was DONE!
if you don't believe me, have your own go with this lovely sketch, i BET you will have something awesome finished in no time! and then c'mon over to the pixie blog and share it with us for a shot at the prize!!! :)
