Wishing you a magical day....

Hi Everyone,

This week I decided to take a break from making Christmas cards and tags and spent some time with the beautiful Lavinia Stamps range.

I love these silhouette stamps, they are so striking and give me an opportunity to play with making my own backgrounds.

To start I took a woodgrain embossed card base and die cut my aperture.

Then I used three Distress Paints (Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Picket Fence) and dabbed these onto a piece of watercolour paper. I spritzed it heavily with water to allow the paint to move and blend.

Once the paint was dry I overstamped with the Lavinia Stamps Thistles stamp set in black Versafine ink and mounted my picture behind the aperture in the card base.

For my sentiment I used "Wishing you a magical day" from the Crimson Cloud Sleeping Flower Fairy stamp set

and stamped it onto a die cut banner and mounted it with foam pads onto the card front.

Finally I decorated the card with some coordinating gems from my stash.

Hope you like it!
