Lavinia Stamps Challenge - March 2015 - Add some Gems

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog.

March is on its way and up until two minutes ago I was thinking that spring was well and truly on its way but now .. it is pouring with rain!  Hope it is much brighter as you read this though. 

A new month and a new challenge and this month it is ADD SOME GEMS!  Remember there is a huge prize of £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps and you do not even have to have a blog to enter as e-mail entries are accepted.  Pop over here and have a look.

Here are my samples for the month:

This card was made using the fabulous Brushos (also available from Lavinia Stamps) and they are incredibly easy to use.  They make stunning backgrounds.  I used the lovely stamp Sky and added some glitter to the wings and some gemstones in the corner before mounting on a die cut using a colour which picks out a colour in the background.

For my second sample I decided to make a New Home card using the Zen large mushroom house which I coloured and used lots of dies I have had for a very long time.

I added some gems to the insects and in the middle of the two round windows to complete the card.  This mushroom is just perfect for a new home card. 

Don't forget to join the challenge as March is a bit longer than February you have more time to enter!

Have fun crafting.  Kx
