Lavinia Stamps, distress inks, Wow embossing powder, Twinkling H20's, Stickles and Glossy Accents.

Howdy all,

It's lovely Lavinia Stamp time again whoo hoo,
 and the start of a new Challenge, the theme for May is 'Birthday Girl'.

I have made two cards as my DT inspiration, I hope you like them.

My first card is 6"x 8", the stamps used are
'Fairy Words', 'Giselle', 'Lavender', 'Stars 2' and 'Have a Fairy Happy Birthday', you can view all the stamps HERE.

I stamped the Fairy Words and the Happy Birthday in Versamark, and heat embossed with a Pink sparkle Wow powder, I stamped the stars all over the remaining card, adding stickles here and there for that must have sparkle.

On a separate piece of card, I stamped the lovely Giselle, coloured her using Twinkling H20 paints, unfortunately the photo does not show the great effect these paints have. I also stamped the Lavender, using 3 colours of Distress inks, then added stickles, (I am addicted, lol), and Glossy accents to the bubbles. 
When it was all dry, I used a die, to cut it into a circle, and added a mat of bright pink.

My 2nd Card was created using,
'Spiral of Spells', 'Fayllin', 'Willow', 'Field Grass', Slender Mushrooms', 'Butterflies' and 'Miniature Toadstool', you can view all the stamps HERE.

This 6"x 6" card was coloured using Distress inks, and stamped using Spiral of spells in Tumbled Glass, Fayllin in Chipped Shapphire, then the plants were added around the card.
 I coloured the Fairy wings with Promarkers, added stickles....again !!!, then little gems to the spiral.

The butterflies were stamped in Picked Raspberry, fussy cut, then, (of course) dabbed with stickles.

I hope you'll join in the Challenge, please pop over to the blog to see all the DT inspiration, they are all little works of art, have a go yourself, you don't have to have a blog, you can enter by email too, all details are HERE.

Hugs, Pauline xxxx
