Peresphone Pixie

Hi All! It's Wednesday which really means nothing other than we are half way through the work week.

I just adore these Pixies from Stamping Bella, and since I have only coloured up a couple of them I needed another fix, so I pulled out Peresphone!


As usual I stamped Peresphone on bella's bestest paper and coloured with primascolour pencils. Designer paper is from Echo Park.
To make the pleated flower, I cut a strip 1/2" wide x 12" long, and scored every quarter using the mini score pal. Then I folded the strip up like an accordian, glued the two ends together, then fold the pleats up again, but at the same time make it lie flat, it just takes a bit of playing with it.  I then glued a small punched circle to the bottom of it to hold the pleats in place.  Added a button on top to cover the hole.
Finished off with some glitter and a leaf branch cut from a Sizzix die.

Enjoy the rest of your day, thanks for stopping by.
