Pixie Cottage Challenge Card (Circles)


Good morning!!  I am stopping by to post this card I did for The Pixie Cottage Challenge.  The theme is circles.  As you can see I am not quite clever enough to use that theme in some fancy way. So I just went with a few circular objects on the card.  I have a baby shower coming up so I thought I would use one of the Precious Stamps by Lisa Schmidt available HERE.  I was so inspired by the cards that Katie and Jan did last week with this stamp I had to give it a try.  And I must admit I am quite enamored with Easel cards, and this is my third! I have not posted the first two yet! Stay tuned...


I used Basic Grey Patterned paper from the Marrakech line, cardstock from Neenah and Bazzill, Prima mini roses, Robin's Nest Dew Drops, Spellbinders Scalloped Circle die, a Fiskars edge Punch, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Color Box Lime Pastel chalk ink and my Copic markers with a touch of Smooch Illuminate to add some sparkle.

I have been trying out different Copic markers to achieve different skin tones, and am going to try and remember to add those to the posts.  This is probably about the palest skin tone I use.

Copic colors:
Skin tones-E50, E51, R11
Other colors: B000, B00, B02
YG11, YG13
T1

Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a great day.

What a precious card Michelle. It is sure to be a keepsake for the lucky momma receiving this card. I love how the new skin tones turned out. I even took a close up look. LOL! You know I have to study every detail when it comes to the copics! I will have to go back to the store and see what colors they are. Very pretty card!
Hugs,
