Pixie squares

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Dotted Matrix Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I popped the Web Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled Teal Wash, Pewter and Firework Burst CS Pixie Powders over and then misted with water. Once dry, I cut four 2" squares and matted them onto Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Sunflowers Vintage Labels Five Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Vintage Labels Five Dies and cut a larger die from the same set out of Black Card.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of White and of Black Satin Ribbon. I added some Silver Metallic Linx and a Craft Consortium Small Pearl Heart Charm.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Black Circle Dazzlers and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
