Lavinia Stamps, Distress inks, Alcohol inks, Promarkers and stickles.


Hello friends and fellow Crafters,

Today sees the start of a New 'Lavinia Stamps Challenge', the April theme is 'Spring Colours'.

These two 8"x 8" cards. I've created using some of the brand new Lavinia stamps that I purchased at the NEC not long ago, in fact they are so new they are not on the Lavinia website yet, unfortunately I don't know the names of them either, so keep watching Lavinia Stamps for the details.




This beautiful image was coloured using Promarkers, and stamped at the bottom with Zen mini stamps using Distress inks. The background again was stamped with Distress inks, and stickles was added too.


The background of this card was blended and stamped using Distress inks, with little bits of the flowers coloured with promarkers, and then stickles. 


The acetate butterfly on this card was stamped with versamark and heat embossed in black, then I used alcohol inks on the reverse side in, when they were dry I coated the inks with white acrylic paint to make the colours pop


I hope you'll join us in the challenge, for a chance to win a whopping £40 voucher to spend on new Lavinia goodies, and as you can see the newest stamps are really fabulous. If you haven't got a blog, don't worry you can till enter via email.

Thank you once again for your visit, please leave me a comment so I know you've popped by. 

Hugs Pauline xxxx

  22. Your butterfly card is beautiful - the delicate blended colours in the background and the array of Spring flowers provide the perfect setting for the colourful butterfly. Thanks for the inspiration - I don't think I'll reach this standard but I'll enjoy trying!
