Con-tent-ed Swiss Pixie

The Sketchie Challenge for the Let’s Get Stamping group over at Craftbubble was set by Karen this week in the form of this sketch along with the twist of only using two colours :

As soon as I saw this layout I saw the potential to make another tent card.I’ve used an adorable Swiss Pixie stamp by CC Designs coloured with tones to compliment the colour scheme of the card.I’ve used the Out-of -the -Box technique and taken away the starkness of the cream card with Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.The papers are freebies from Summertime Designs.Please read and respect her terms of use.The red and tan card are from my stash and the colours have been toned down with the same inks.I’ve used Standard Circle Nestabilities to cut the apeture and matting layers.The red one has been embossed with my new Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder and I’ve applied Frayed Burlap ink with a cotton bud to tie in with the ladybird.I found some tan eyelets in my stash and used some tan waxed cord to hang her up.The flowers have been cut from felt using the Tattered Florals Tim Holtz Sizzix die and because they were too vivid I took the colour down with more Distress Inks.I threaded some buttons with more cord before adding them to the centres.I adhered two pieces of raffia lace either side of the apeture then tied some red raffia around,splaying and tearing the ends.I feel these elements tie in with the Vintage/Rustic look of the card.The sentiment is from the same set and the flower on it has been coloured with ProMarkers. and the edges have been inked.
