I have often seen the Lavinia stamps advertized in magazines. This one was given away with a recent Papercrafts Essential magazine, so I thought I would have ago at creating a card using the stamps.
I cut a square of pale blue centura pearl card and using masking and distress inks created the background and also very messy fingers! I stamped the fairy, mushrooms and sentiment using black memento ink and then sprayed the fairies wings with iridescent spray and sparkle from Crafter's Companion. Once this was dry I stamped the fairy dust using distress ink and added Stickles to most of them. I also stamped the foliage using distress ink but had to leave these overnight to dry as the ink 'puddled' on the centura pearl, but it did create a more natural look of dark and light shades. I think I shall have another play with these stamps trying out different card and ink pads.
I matted the design onto Glitter Silk core'dinations cardstock and then onto white card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
