Its pink at Lavinia

Good morning all! Thanks for your lovely comments on my clock - I really was unsure about it but you liked it - so thanks for that! My good friend Anne suggested painting the clock hands black - I think I may very well do that! It will definitely make them show up more clearly.

Today I have the card I've made with both the Lavinia challenge and the one over at Stamping Sensations this month. Its another bright one and very pink!




I started off with a wash of worn lipstick distress stain then used water to spritz and flick then dried it off. I used a clarity mask to create the hill shapes and used distress ink colours for the various hill layers. The plants and fairy were added next stamping in black archival and then the stars were done by stamping in versa and adding white opaque wow powders. Finally I added my penny black sentiment.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Lavinialaviniastamps March challenge
Stamping sensationssirstampalotchallenge: pretty in Pink
CFAScraftingforallseasons: Spring into spring
mmcs:mymumscraftshop Spring and Easter
Oldie but a goodieoldiebutagoodiechallenge: Spring has sprung

Thanks for dropping by today - and I hope you'll leave a message to let me know you dropped by!

Big Hugs

Rachel xx
