Hi All

You don't need a Blog. We accept Email Entries too..... So go onto the Lavinia Stamps web page and all the links are there for you to enter the Challenge. So Good Luck and here's mine for this month
My DT projects features the following stamps......
Card 1..... I used the beautiful "Floral Spray" Stamp. I stamped this a number of times, painted it and then cut them out and then I turned one of the Flower Spray around and voila a flower was born. I repeated this three times and then stuck them onto a Distress Inked background that I made and I added another Lavinia Stamp called Background Script and I just adore this so much.....

Card 2 ..... I used one of the small Zen Flower Pack Stamps which I stamped loads and loads of times and painted them using the Aquamarkers..... I used the Lavender stamp in the background with various shades of yellow, orange and red to give a perspective of distance.... I then layered the Zen Flowers into sprays of gorgeous flowers and added a few Bees to complete the finishing look.....


Card 3 .... For this I used the very pretty "Lilly" Stamp and stamped this 5 times along the card at various heights and then I painted them and added some white hi-lights and dots for interest..... I also added the "Weaving Ivy" for some interest in the sky..... I thought it was a little bare so I then went and added the decoupage of the pretty fairy "Melodie" stamp which I think made all the difference to the card.....

Anyway I really hope these have inspired you to have a go yourself..... I do hope so as then I would have done what I set out to do.....

I'll be back soon with more things to share with you.

Thanks for strolling over to my Blog today.
