Lavinia Stamps, Distress Inks, & Stickles.

Helllooooo Crafters,

It's the beginning of the month, and the start of a new
Lavinia Stamps Challenge, the theme for August is...
'Anything but a card'.

I used some glossy card, a brayer plus distress inks and clingfilm for the inserts, cut them to size, and stamped them with black Stazon ink, then added acetate wings to the Fairy and Bee on the top, and topped off with Stickles.

The stamps I used were.......

I am conducting another 'Inky Workshop' on Sunday 23rd August, 10am-4pm, in a venue near Warwick, using some inking techniques with stamps.
