Also wanting to create a scrapbook page and
I stamped Hannah on the 12x12 card stock
and then additionally to make a mask.
I extended portions of the scenery; more flowers, additional pond ripples, and clouds. Photo is angled so you can see the crayon drawings...
It was now time to start spraying ink color directly to the layout...
The effect of the white appearing was reminiscent of coloring an Easter Egg with a white crayon before dipping in dye.
As this is a form of 'show n tell" I feel it's fair to share all...the ink sprays out in thick round blasts...the brown came out very dark and heavy...
Hence take #2...
I got further, used less dark brown, more blue, but felt as though the cornflower sky was alerting us to an Oklahoma tornado coming soon, and poor Hannah did not need to be sitting outside in that kind of weather!
"THIRD times a charm!"
...Stamp again, and apply the mask...
Added more pencil color...

"Mom, what's that?"
"That's this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge"
"Can you leave it up on the screen?"
"Mom, can I look through your stamps?"
"May I have a piece of purple card stock, a piece of green, oh, and do you have any ribbon that is green with white polka dots???"
Given all of that and black ink Sienna was set to create...
She chose the my Barnie in Spring stamp for her card...
Furthering the "monkey see/monkey do" morning. Sierra walks through the studio and spies the eye catching rays of textured sunshine.
"Sienna did this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge."
"Can I play!?"
"Sure. Here's the sketch and the theme is 'TRIPLE PLAY';
you have to repeat an image 3 times."
"Can I look at your stamps?"
"Oooh, can I use your froggy? a.k.a....
