The Pixie Cottage Challenge #26 - Guest Sketch and Make an Aperture card (in other words put in a window in it!)

It's time for another Once Upon A Wednesday with another fabulous Special Guest Sketch Artist and this time it's Dawny P from The Pink Piggy!
Dawny is a super card maker and her sketches are so popular that they not only appear on her Papertake Weekly challenge but she's also a DT member on fabulous challenges such as Just Magnolia, Lili of The Valley, Dies to Die For, Anyone for Anya and more!

Also Dawny created this stunning card for us featuring Ballerina Fairy by Alisa Ramirez

Along with the sketch we have the added option making an Aperture card.
If you don't know what that means, it is simply a window on the front of your card looking in.
The team samples should give you some ideas if you want to try the technique as well (or instead of) the sketch.
You don't have to use a Pixie Cottage Stamp to enter but if you do have why not try out!
Remember you can use the sketch, the theme or both and can combine our challenge with any others you like!

One randomly picked winner will get their choice of 2 Pixie Cottage Stamps and the Design Teams Top Three entries will get to display the winners badge on their blog.
Winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of the challenge.

Our guest designer for both July and August will be Lisa and she has started us off with this wonderful card!
Using Spring Time Hannah With Butterflies by Sandra Hammer

We also have another guest for July and that is the super talented Tracy and she has this super creation for us!
Using Over The Moon by Tina Akonom

Be sure to visit them both and leave a little Pixie Cottage love for them.

Now for the rest of the team, some have chosen to do the sketch and others have done both parts of the challenge.

My interpretation is slightly different, but maybe you'll count poetic liscense. I did get the Soft Pencil digi on here. Thanks for a fun place to play.

Beverly G said...

Ignore the Soft Pencil Digi comment, please. Shouldn't be doing this when I'm tired.

Gorgeous cards by the DT. Wow! what inspiration. This is the first time I made a window in a card. Of course, it's mainly because I misread the challenge and didn't notice that it was optional. LOL.
