Lavinia Stamps, Distress inks, Promarkers, Stickles and a few gems.

Hi there,

Gosh we are already into March, and I must admit, I'm enjoying the bit of sunshine that we have occasionally !!

Today I like to share a couple of cards I've created, as a DT member, hopefully to inspire you to get your entries into the new Lavinia Stamps Challenge, the theme for March is 'Add some Gems'.

The stamps I've used on this card are........

I stamped Giselle using Memento Black Tuxedo, and coloured her using Promarkers, I roughly blended 2 colours of Distress ink around her, and grounded her too with some bumpy grass. I then stamped the words using Black Versafine ink.

I also stamped an extra set of wings which I coloured and fussy cut and added to Giselle to give a bit more dimension, I then added some small gems in the bubbles and randomly in the words and of course some Stickles on the wings.

The stamp on this card is.......

I decided to make a very simple card with this stamp, unlike me, lol, it is such a beautiful image I felt it needed to be seen in all it's glory, so I cut 3 circle shapes on my Big Shot with some Spellbinders dies, and a card blank using the largest die. On the smallest circle, I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and again coloured with Promarkers, I blended around the edge with Distress ink, and added a Timmy Chit Chat sticker. I blended Distress inks on the edges f the next 2 circles for matt and layering, added it all to the card blank, ad stuck a few gems on, Stickles finished it all off.

You can always enter the Challenge by email if you haven't got a blog, all the details are HERE, there's a chance of winning a whopping £40 worth of products from the Lavinia  web-Shop.
