Lavinia Stamps, Distress inks, Dylusions, Stickles

Hi there,

It's time for a new Lavinia Stamps Challenge,
 the theme for July is 'Summer Colours'. These are my DT makes, to hopefully inspire you to make something and enter, for a chance to win £40 to spend on some new Lavinia goodies.

My first card is 6"x 8", and the background is Dylusion sprays, over stamped in black Archival, with.......
 Tree Root, Tree Goddess 'Luna', Wild Flower, and Willow.

I then used a white pen, Stickles and Liquid pearls to add colour to the stamping.
 I stamped 'Luna's' wings onto a separate piece of card, coloured them with promarkers and stickles, fussy cut, then added to the image.

My second is a 6"x 6" card, and the background was achieved with Distress inks, and the stamps I used are.............
 Gaggle of Geese, Bullrushes, Tree Scene, and Fern Leaf.  

All the top stamping was done in Black Archival, the reflection was done with Black soot Distress ink, using my Splodge mat, again I used l
Liquid Pearls and Stickles to add colour to the image.

I hope I have given you a little help, to inspire you to have a go and enter the Challenge, all the rules, details of how to enter and more DT inspiration HERE.

All Lavinia stamps and products can be seen HERE.

Thank you for visiting, and for the fab comments you always leave.

  1. Both gorgeous cards Pauline with gorgeous colours!. I've enjoyed working with Lavinia stamps & Sweet Poppy stencils recently & Luna took centre stage in our shop window display for our recent town festival in Chipping Sodbury. You can see here she is a beautiful fairy stamp. Love Tracey's designs.
    Now I'm tempted to play around some more & enter this months challenge!
