CCT mono mania ~ just peachy!

Hello.  Hope you all had a lovely Easter and didn't overdose on choccy eggs too much!  CCT theme this week is 'Monomania' so just 1 shade of colour.

I wanted to use some of my cute swiss pixie stamps (this one is my fave) and she just cried out peachy/earthy colours so that's what I did - just used the E numbers of my copics for colouring her and found a piece of peachy dp to go with her.  I've sponged around the edges with distress ink 'dried marigold' and I had to try out some of my new EK success & MS border punches ;)


  • Stamps: the pixie, watering can and butterflies are 3 stamps from the Swiss pixie spring kit from CC Designs. sentiment is Basice Grey stamp
  • Colouring: Copics, mainly E numbers may have snuck in a YR colour for her hair
  • Paper: Cosmo Cricket 'earth love' and some Kraft card
  • Tools: distresser tool, EK border punch 'bumpy road' around the edges of the image, MS 'woodland branch' around the page border punch (LOVE this one)
  • Others: flat backed pearls 4mm, 8mm, stickles on the flowers, butterflies and her wings

    Well, that's all from me for now, have a lovely day and thanks for popping by.
