Fave colour monochromatic challenge over at Take the Pixie Challenge!

(Please scroll down for my Quixotic Inspirations DT card!)


Ooooohhh, today is my first DT card for the Take the Pixie Challenge!  And this week we are challenging you to take your favourite colour (okay, not really challenging) and to create a monochromatic card with it (a bit more challenging perhaps!).  Orange is actually my most fave colour ever but I've made so many cards with it recently that I've lost my mojo with it!  So I decided to go for my second favourite colour instead - teal...

 
 


Now I luuuuurve this colour but don't use it often so it was a pleasure to make this card using the ever sweet Wink Pretends - he's delightful, don't you think?! I matched him up with my Cosmo Cricket Togetherness paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here) and with a sentiment from the Paper Makeup Sailing By stamp set (here). 

You can see the rest of the gorgeous DT inspiration here - I hope you get to play along with us for a chance to win a gorgeous Pixie Dust Studio digi!  You don't have to use a PDS image but we love it when you do!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Togetherness paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps:  Pixie Dust Studios Wink Pretends, Paper Makeup Sailing By sentiment (here)
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Accents: web ribbon

Tools: Nestabilitie dies, distressing tool

When we consider the concept of the phrase adore, not just in regards to a romantic connection along with one more, although as a feeling that may be engendered once you have miltchmonkey a much better romantic relationship with ourselves very ( blank ) and even being a sense of increased oneness with your family or perhaps man ( blank ) therefore it results in being far more really clear that every one any one needs in your everyday living is certainly enjoy.
