Lavinia Stamps Challenge #2 Bright & Beautiful

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog.  Firstly, many congratulations to Barry who won the first Lavinia Stamps Challenge of 2015.  Barry is now the lucky winner of £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps and you could be a winner too.  All you have to do is join in the Challenge and you do not even have to have a blog as you can enter by e-mail.  So do join us and you too could be a winner.  Just pop over to the blog here

Here are my samples for this month:


For this one I made a pop up box card and used the digital stamp Lady of the Rose Garden for the flaps and the three zen flowers with a grass die cut behind them, all these are coloured with my trusty copics.


I used Distress inks to colour this one and a couple of stencils for the background.  I used the Fairy words for the background as they are great to use in this way.  I embossed the words in silver to make them stand out a bit without overpowering the image used on the tag - Flower Fairy - a very versatile stamp.  I popped a bright pink bow on the top to add some extra "brightness".

Hope you have a good week and I will see you soon. Kx
