Pixie Powders & Gnomes – Creative Expressions

Hi there and welcome to all my new and existing followers. I have made a little video for you today using the fab pixie powders and two great stamp sets, ¬†Lisa Hortons ‘Make Gnome Mistakes‘ & John Lockwoods ‘Christmas Borders & Flourishes‘.

I couldn’t wait to share this with you today. There are so many ways to use all of these products, and I wanted to create a card with a Scandanavian / Nordic style, I am loving the clean lines and uncluttered style this year. it’s not often I choose to use red, but this shades tones so well with the icy blues.

I stamped and ¬†coloured with watercolor crayons with under tones of grey. The card is lifted by adding a pop of colour with the pixie powder ‘Teal Wash’ it tones beautifully with the images and the foundation card I used to make the card blank (Aqua & Cornflower foundation card). I use the christmas borders to stamp a repeating pattern in the back ground, using Hickory Smoke distress ink, much subtler than going with black.
