Pixie's Playground Challenge #412

 I came across a snippet of left over card which had been coloured using Pixie Powders and as it was quite delicate in colour I thought it would be ideal to use as a backdrop to this dancing lady.  I used a die to cut it into a circle and lightly stencilled using some lilac ink, followed by random stamping in light grey with some music.  The lady was stamped onto a snippet of white card and coloured using a water brush with some of the same lilac ink. The toning lilac circle was also cut from a snippet of card but I must admit that the butterfly background was most of  a whole piece from a pack of 6" square papers.  As soon as I'd decided what to do with the coloured piece of card I thought this would be ideal for Challenge #412 in the Pixie Snippets Playground.  Finally the sentiment was stamped onto the remaining small snippet of the 'pixied' card and fussy cut.
