This is only a quick post, just to let you know that the
June Lavinia Challenge is starting today, the theme this month is
'Use any colours you like'.
I have just got back from a fabuous, very hectic crafting weekend with some fabulous friends, including Eileen Godwin, Karen Buckle, Hellen Pearce, Barbara Cleggett, Yvonne Froehlich and Jane Barber, and wow what a weekend it was, I could now sleep for a week, lol !!!!
Here is a little bit of Lavinia inspiration from me, but please pop over to the Challenge link above, to also see my very talented fellow Teamies projects, they are wonderful.
The stamps I used are.....
Distress ink background, over-stamped and coloured with Distress inks, Stickles on the little fairies, and acrylic paint stippled for the blossoms.
These stamps are.......
Distress ink background, over-stamped and coloured with Stickles.
And the last one, the stamps are.....
I used Pebeo High Viscosity Acrylic paints for the background, stamped using versamark and heat embossed in Black powder, Stickles for the wings and flower.
