New Lavinia Stamps Challenge for April - "Pink or Blue or Both" !!!

Morning All.....

Wow it's May already and that it the start of a New Lavinia Stamp Challenge and this Month it's Pink or Blue or Both !!!

You could win a voucher for £40.00 to spend in the Lavinia Stamps Web Shop http://laviniastamps.com/shop/ ...... So go on give it a go as you know you have to be in it to win !!!

Here are my three Samples that I have made..... Hope you like them !!!

My first was made on a MDF Heart gesso'd and stencilled to create a background for me to stamp on and the I have used the lovely stamp "Moon Gazing Hare" and the pretty Maple Leaf stamp both stamped in Black Archival Ink.....

For my next sample I used the "Floral Spray Stamp" which I stamped onto a blended Distress inked background that I had created and I stamped the new Background Script Stamp which is just beautiful and can be used in so may ways..... I just love that stamp !!!

......and for my 3rd Sample I have used "Sitting Fairy" stamp which is adorable with her lovely face..... I first stencilled a background and then stamped in various shades of pink the "Bluebell" stamp and once I was happy with my background I hi-lighted the background in places using the Sparkle Gel Pen which add that little bit of something else, bling !!!.... I stamped and painted the Sitting Fairy" and then decoupaged the image to make her look as if she is real.....


I do hope you like my samples this month and thanks for popping by to check them out.....

Bye for now and hopefully I will be back soon

  4. Superb work Marianne! Your decoupage work is incredible, so beautiful! Xx

  5. Beautiful work as usual Marianne. Love them all. Kx

  6. Love the gentle colours on these cards - so pretty and perfect

  7. I love how you've layered up the floral spray - it looks fantastic. I think you really must be the Queen of Decoupage! I'm afraid I couldn't cut out accurately enough to match you - I'm sure I'd end up cutting off a fairy's head or a flower's petal!
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Hi there Marianne, your cards are beautiful, I particularly like the 'Floral Spray' card.
    Love the colours and the way you have 3D it, Enjoy the rest of your weekend Hun.
    Hugs Jennifer xx.

  9. Fantastic work as always from you Marianne. These are so pretty and its joy to have you on our DT ... Eileen xx

  10. Your use of subtle colours, composition and fine detail goes to make these stunning pieces of artwork Marianne. I am still in awe of how fine you can cut. I had a little try since meeting you at Maidstone and ended up with bent fairy arms or flower stems. What paper/card do you stamp onto please? Love the cheeky fairy, I'm wondering what mischief she's planning in her garden of Eden! Xx

  11. Wow, theses are all amazing, Marianne......How you have the patience to fussy-cut like you do is beyond me, LOL......love them all xx

  12. Gorgeous as always Marianne, love that wee fairy she looks so mischievous! x
