Autumn Colour Pixies..

Happy Tuesday,

A peak at the new autumnal colours of Pixie Powders today which make this subtle yet shiny background.

I stared by spritzing watercolour card with water then added Burnt Orange, scattered straw and Aubergine dream pixie powders before adding more water.  I the took a print form the watercolour card using a sheet of vellum.


I cut a larger panel of the scalloped trellis die by slotting the die back into place got make a large piece.  Next I cut a frame using the stitched dies that come with the lattice using the largest and smallest in taupe foundation card and the 2 medium dies in the pixie powder papers.  I then  mounted the piece left from the frame behind the lattice.





I then cut the cape daisies in the coloured velum, shaped them with my ball tool and mounted them with centres cut fro the pixie powder paper.  I added white microbeads in the centre of the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment from my autumns child stamp set onto a strip of the velum and cut not with the stitched flags die adding a white mat.



Finally I arranged the flowers around foliage made with a selection of the festive foliage dies ( I love dies that last all year)

Enjoy...

    Lovely card today John, like how you have used the scalloped frame dies.
    The pixie powders autumnal shades look great. I really will have to get some Pixie powders to try all these techniques. Great idea using all flower dies and foliage to make a bouquet.

    A very pretty card, the new Pixie Powders look gorgeous and I love the cape daisies. I think using vellum to make certain flowers really enhances the end result

  28. Morning John. This is just the sort of card that I like. Love the muted colours which look just a tiny bit vintage. I would have to say the Cape Daisy is now my favourite flower so I love the over-the-top spray in the corner.
