Lavinia Stamps Challenge 2, Bright and Beautiful, DT samples.

Hi Friends, fellow bloggers and New followers.

These are the cards I have made as a member of the DT group, for the
 2nd Lavinia Stamps Challenge, 'Bright and Beautiful'.

Why not have a go, and make a project, using Lavinia Stamps of course, and enter the Challenge, you may be the lucky winner of a £40 voucher to spend at Lavinia Stamps, on some gorgeous new goodies.

Project 1,  3"x 5 1/2" Tag.

I used 2 Lavinia stamps for this tag,

Bee ( which is a bargain at only £1.00), and Bluebells.

View the stamps HERE

The bluebells were stamped and heat embossed, and the bee was stamped, coloured with promarkers, and cut out, and attached with 3D glue so he stands proud.

Project 2. 6"x 8" card.

5 Lavinia stamps used on this card,

Flower Fairy, Birds, Grass, Small Dancing Fairy (this is one out of a pack of 3), and a lovely sentiment, The world is full of Beauty...........

View the stamps HERE

The background was coloured with Pan Pastels  I coloured the fairy wings with Promakers,  when I'd put all the elements together, I added loads of stickles!!!

Project 3, 6"x 6" card.

4 Lavinia Stamps used on this card.

Wet Wings, Silver Birch, Dragonflies (from Bugs 'New'), and Small Slender Mushrooms.

View the stamps HERE 

Again I used Pan Pastels on the background, and Promarkers and glitter on the wings.

Project 4, 6"x 6" Dandelion card.

2 Lavinia stamps used here,

Dandelions (set of 3), and Dragonflies (from Bugs 'New').

View the stamps HERE.

I used Dylusions spray inks for the background, and coloured the moon/sun with mica powder mixed with water.The Dandelions were glittered with Stickles, and I used 2 Spellbinder dies to make the raised focal point.

I hope you've enjoyed looking at my DT samples, and that maybe I've given you a bit of inspiration, so's that you can enter the Lavinia Stamps Challenge.
