Lavinia Stamps May 2019 Monthly Challenge "Make It Bright" #laviniastamps

Another month and another challenge prompt from Lavinia Stamps, where you have a chance of winning £40 of vouchers to spend on their site.  

For May 2019 the prompt is "Make It Bright" - so I did!

I used a selection of Distress Oxides for the background:  Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry and Mermaid Lagoon.

Everything was stamped in various shades of Versafine Clair Ink:  Nocturne, Morning Mist, Tulip Red and Glamorous.

I stamped by stamping the crow "Drake" then added the "Star Burst" for Drake to stand on.  I added the trailing "Willow" and "Wild Vines".  To finish, I added touches of white highlight areas with a Signo Pen and some colour to the Star Burst using Sakura Gelly Roll pens.


  1. You created a dramatic bold scene Samantha, love the background colours against the black vines and fabulous crow

    1. Thank you Meg. I was surprised how well it turned out. I made it about six weeks ago, so once I've scheduled the blog post I kind of forget what I've made. Sam x

  2. Fabulous background but love the crow-the one my grandaughters rescued last Summer had some kind of fit and dies on Monday -shame we got him really tame and could hand feed him
