Lavinia Stamps Challenge 7 - Anything Goes

Hi Everyone

Another month has gone by and it reminds me of when I was young and my Nan said "time goes so quickly as you get older".  I thought it was so funny to say "Don't be silly, time is time".  Well I know now exactly what she meant - I cannot believe it is August already - did anyone else see where July went?

So, another month and another challenge for Lavinia Stamps - Anything Goes.  What a great challenge.  Here is my design.

 
For the focus image I used the lovely Moon Fairy, this has got to be one of the loveliest Lavinia Stamps ever.  For the background I used "Fairy Words", slender mushrooms and Stars 2.  I used Distress Inks, barn door, ripe persimmon and mustard seed.  I swiped over with versamark and embossed with clear powder.  I masked the moon and used the same colour DI's for the Moon Fairy.  I did not emboss this as I wanted a little bit of a contrast. 
 
Remember the prize for winning the challenge is £40 (yes £40) of Lavinia Stamps and the only difficulty you will have is deciding which of the beautiful stamps you simply cannot live without!


So pop on over to the Lavinia Challenge blog and join in today.

Thanks for looking. Kx
