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.
