Colourful Fairies

Bright and Beautiful
It has inspired me to make these cards
I also took my inspiration from the main Lavinia Site 
It really is stunning
Update...I was lucky enough to win the challenge and I am absolutely delighted and thrilled
I thought I would try to make these cards using the Lavinia stamps I had 
and in Brighter colours for the challenge

The first card I made was the pink one but felt it needed to be 'Brighter ' 
to meet the Challenge, so I made the orange one
I did so enjoy 'playing' with distress inks, paints, sprays, alcohol inks etc 
I normally only use Stickles glitters to accent my cards 
but when  I saw Rachel's Mini Book and how she used the Stickles 
I thought it was so pretty, gave it a go and was so pleased with the results
It's hard to show in my photos the effect of the glitter.

I also stamped and glittered the inside of the cards

Thank you for inspiring me to do these cards

A Touch of RED

IndigoBlu Challenge
IndigoBlu's challenge this month is A Touch of RED
Update...I was lucky enough to win the challenge and I am absolutely delighted and thrilled
The theme of the challenge inspired me to make this card
I stamped white card using the IndigoBlu vintage Flourish Stamp 
in Black and Grey Archival Ink
I die cut and layered the card up with small black card frames
and popped on a dotty ribbon, die cut butterfly, diamante's and Red Rose
Finishing off with the birthday sentiment
I also stamped the Flourish stamp on the inside and on the back of the card 
I love Mono cards but the red pop of the rose just adds another dimension to the card
I loved making this card using the gorgeous and high quality IndigoBlu stamp
