Welcome to all my new followers and sorry I have not been around much but have not had a very good December. Like a lot of people, I have been unwell for most of it! Never mind, it is a new year so onwards and upwards.
A New Year and a New Month so welcome to the Lavinia Stamps Challenge and this month the challenge is Add Some Glitter. Let's face it we all love a bit of glitter so this challenge should not be difficult! The prize is a whopping £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps, just think of all the lovely stamps you could get for that.
As an added bonus, we are now accepting E-MAIL ENTRIES so for everyone who wants to enter but does not have a blog to showcase their work, you can now enter and share your work with us for a chance of winning the fantastic prize. So what are you waiting for?
Here is my sample for the Challenge:
It is hard to see the glitter I know but there really is some! I hope you can see the glitter on the next two.
For my calendar I have used the fabulous Sea-Scapes which are fantastic ready made backgrounds of excellent quality just waiting for you to add the stamps. For the first section I have used Water Mist and used the gorgeous stamp "Moon Fairy". I painted the moon and the wings with Stargazers Nova White and a little Quasar blue for the wings. I then added Glamour Dust to the wings and some Stickles to the stars of the background.
For the second scene I used Summer Haze and the stamps "Fairy Couple" and the words "Fairy dust is like love".
A long post today to make up for my absence so hope you like what I have made.
I hope you will all join in the Challenge - remember it is a fantastic prize. Look forward to seeing what you have made.
Have a great 2014. Kx
