There’s a Pixie in my Tea!


 **Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page 😦  **

It’s the third week of the month long Flowers challenge at Just Some Lines.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3 🙂 

I’ve taken the delightful Pixie Floats by Just Some Lines and coloured her with Polychromos Pencils.The tea was blended out with oils thinners and a paper stump to give a more translucent feel.I added some white gel pen ripples.The tea cup and handle have been paper pieced with a floral rose paper as if the tea has been served in the best china.I remember my Grandma doing just this whenever we went to visit 🙂 I chose a doily patterned and coordinating rose paper to go with this,keeping to the whole tea time theme.I created an overlapping tab by trimming down a die cut.To this I added a sentiment from the same collection.The bow and leaves have been die cut from felt then topped with a resin rose.The ticket was hand cut from another paper in the set and tucked in underneath 🙂

Oh my it’s been quite a while since I’ve been able to add anything to my blog.My PC can’t connect to the internet ATM.So frustrating!!Have been allowed the use of  my DH’s laptop but the connection failed there too for a while 😦 My computer is still out of action and I’m feeling pretty cut up about it.Nor am I relishing the thought of having to get it repaired.Oh why did it have to go wrong?!
