Happy New Year and a new Lavinia Stamps Challenge!

Dear All

A very happy New Year to everyone.  I hope that 2015 will be very kind to you. 

This month's challenge is "Anything Goes" so get out your Lavinia Stamps and show us your wonderful creations.  Remember you have a chance to win £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps.

Don't forget, anyone can join in, you don't have to have a blog as e-mail entries are accepted.  Pop over to the Lavinia Stamps Challenge Blog and have a go.

Here are my samples this month:

For this one I embossed the tag then used the distress inks for the background.  I used the lovely Lavinia Stamps - Zen leaves and hanging lanterns (used upside down and glossed).  I coloured these in with copics and used a white gel pen to highlight the lanterns.  I also used one of the small butterflies to create a "meadow scene".


For this card I used two of the background papers which are just fantastic to make a quick card.  I used the "purple papers" and the Scenescape Watermist.  I used one of my favourite Lavinia stamps - Moon Fairy - it is so beautiful which I painted and covered in glitter for the wings.  With a a couple of die cuts and some flowers the card is done - all in my favourite colour!
Hope you like them.
