Serene Safari Card




Hi crafters!  This is a fabulous technique that you can do with the Pixie Powders to give them an incredible look.  You are going to want to pull out your powders and have a play when you see how easy it is!









The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x
8 1/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hello Sue,

A gorgeous card and such a wonderful technique to use with the pixie powders. What did we ever do before we had pixie powders? Thanks for sharing with us today.

Have a great day,

Beverly

Hiya Sue. Serene in a nut shell and I've seen a Muriel card - beautiful. There's something about silhouette that I love, it would sound so ridiculously stupid if I said it just stands out so beautifully no matter what the subject is but a jungle theme - just something special. I wish I had this set now as your pixie background is just so lovely and I'm seeing other flashes of colours and other clever techniques in my mind that would equally show this collection off to perfection. Look forward to visiting your craft room when I have a clear, wide awake slice of brain to take it in. Enjoy your day and hope those bugs have completely gone now xxx

Hi Sue,
What a lovely surprise when I clicked on this morning;s present from you.
I bought this die set years ago and have never used it although I love it. I must have known that 1 day I would get the motivation.

I spent many happy Holidays in South Africa as at one time 3 of my children lived there and 4 of my Grandchildren were born there.

I'm sure you have lit my fuse Sue and I do have the dies and the Pixie Powders and right now I'm feeling enthusiastic to get started.
Hugs.
Marie P,

Good Morning Sue. Oh what a lovely treat a video on a Tuesday. And what a great video it is too. I just love what you have done this morning. Would be great for my husband...he loves the wild life. I can't wait to try this technique. I do know its been around for a while ...but I have never seen it demonstrated. So yes I will be even busier today . Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Beautiful card design for the nature lovers in one's life. Another great technique with the pixies. When I get home I am looking forward to trying the Cling Wrap on pixie powders. The blues you used on this design combined so nicely. Thanks for the helpful video. I am always in need of help.
