Lavinia Stamps December Challenge - Anything Goes

Hi Everyone

December already, where did November go?

Another month and another challenge from Lavinia Stamps.  This month I have two samples for the new Challenge - Anything Goes.  Hope you like them.  Remember there is a wonderful prize each month of £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps, £40! So come along and join in the fun, what have you got to lose?


 
 
For the first one I chose a "pop art" theme.  Using distress inks, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn to some squares and used the same colours on a rectangular piece of card. Using Zen Tall mushrooms I stamped one image on each of the four squares then Zen plant on the rectangular one.  Using a white Posca pen I added the dots for definition.  A little bit of layering and lo and behold one card.
 
For the second one I used the beautiful stamp "Christmas Night".  After masking off the circule for the moon I stamped on top of distress inks, Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Broken china which I layered and added to a card I had put some black card on.  On top of that I added a Snowflake die (twice!), a little bit of glitter and all done.
 
Hope you like them. Kx
