Lavinia Stamps, Ranger Alcohol inks, Distress inks, Gilding flakes on cards.

Hi there,
It's the beginning of a new month, which means the beginning of a new Challenge at Lavinia Stamps.

The theme for Challenge 8 is 'Autumn Colours',
 so come on get those Lavinia Stamps out, create something and enter, 
you could win a whopping £40 to spend on more Lavinia goodies, 
and Tracey has designed some fab 'NEW' Zentangle stamps which
 are now in the shop.

I'd like to share my DT samples with you, it may help, with a bit of inspiration.

My first card is 6"x 8", and made using gilding flake, double sided sticky sheet, acetate, Archival black ink and rather a lot of  Stickles in different colours.

The stamps I used are....Tree Root-New, Grass and Tree Godess 'Luna'.

My second card is again 6"x 8" and split between monochrome and coloured, using Pan pastels, Distress inks, and of course Stickles.

The stamps I used are.... Autumn Fall Fairy-small, Creeping Vine, Spring Trees, Fairy House, Slender Mushrooms.

My third card is 6"x 6", and I used Alcohol inks on acetate, and of course the obligatory Stickles !!! Unfortunately my stamping does not show up too well in the photo...

I used a separate piece of acetate for the faeries, to make them look as if they were really flying....

Again the photo's don't show it well...... sorry.
The stamps I used are.... Spiral of spells and Fairy Couple.

Do have a go at the challenge, you have nothing to loose, but if you are the lucky winner, a lovely prize of £40 to spend.

Thank you so much for visiting, and please leave a comment to show you've been.

Hugs, Pauline xxxx
