Color Challenge

Had a little time today so I decided to do a challenge. Checked out a few and when I came the Pixie Dust Challenge (http://pixieduststudiopixiechallenge.blogspot.com/) I knew I had to do this challenge. The color palette reminded of some paper I had in my scrap box, so...to the craft room!

This is what I came up with...I really wanted to do something different so...here's is what I did.
I used a Pixie Dust image (Muddy Buddy: Playpen Pals). I colored it with Stampin' Up pencils, and used Gamsol to blend. I colored two images. I then cut out the head and feet from one image and pop dotted it onto the other image. I added Crystal Effects to the hooves and snout. I also added a white dot on the eye with my gel pen. I then matted the image onto Co-ordination Cappuccino. For the Card I used Co-ordiantions Cappuccino layered with a plaid by The Girls' Paperie (Jubilee line). I then created the border using a brown and white stripe punched and threaded with a gold ribbon. I adhered everything with glue dots, except the matted image I used pop dots. Final touch, I added two flowers also by The Girls' Paperie and embellished with rhinestones.

I think it turned out really cute...and I know just the person I am going to give it to :)
