Lavinia Stamps, Distress inks, Wow embossing powder, and Stickles.

Hi there,

Just popping in to tell you about the Lavinia Stamps October Challenge, which has just started, the theme this month is 'Autumn Colours'.

On my first card the stamps I used are, 
Fairy Pods, a Fairy from Three Dancing Fairies, Bubbles and Believe in Magic.

I blended some Distress inks for the background, and gave it a splatter of water, then stamping the Pods with Versamark and heat embossing in white powder, I also stamped the Fairy, bubbles and the sentiment in the same way. I coloured inside the pods with Distress inks, added glossy accents to the bubbles, then went around all the images with a blue Promarker, to make them pop,
 and the finishing touch......Stickles of course !!!!

My second project is a tag, using.......
 Spotty Toadstool, Zen Plant,Vine, and Field Grass 

I used a manila tag, blending some Distress inks over it to make a scene, I stamped all the stamps where I wanted them, then stamped the Toadstools onto a separate piece of card, coloured and fussy cut, but the tops only, which I added with Glue gel to give dimension. 
To finish I added Stickles and some coloured ribbon.

I hope you'll have a go and enter the Lavinia Challenge, there's a chance of winning a whopping £40 on some new goodies, all details and lots of yummy DT inspiration projects, can be seen HERE.
