Lavinia Stamps August 2019 Monthly Challenge - Create Your Own Dream
It is the first of the month, so time for the new Lavinia Stamps Monthly challenge, which has a theme of "Create Your Own Dreams".
If you enter the challenge, your name could be randomly drawn and you could win £40 of vouchers to spend on lovely Lavinia goodies.
This is one of my Design Team samples for this theme. I have used a round gelli plate with a Colorbox Ink in a shade called "Dandelion" brayered onto the plate, with diluted Brusho sprinkled onto the surface with a fan brush to create the speckled background.
Once the background was dry, I stamped the fairy, called "Tree Goddess Luna" in Versafine Clair "Norcturne" shade of ink. I also stamped the sentiment called "Once Upon A Dream" on a separate piece of card with the same colours. I then cut the sentiment up into words.
In black card, I die cut a circle in the middle of the card. I then added some glue to the underside and positioned the aperture over the stamped image and pressed down to help the glue to adhere. I then added the stamped words across the card.
I stamped the fairy wings, using a black StazOn ink on to some vellum and cut around them. I then carefully stuck them to the back of the fairy.
Finally, using a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen and a Signo glitter pen I added some subtle sparkle to various areas of the image to create a shimmer/fairy look to the card.

Thank you. I stamped the wings onto Vellum and then cut them out and adhered over the main image of the wings. Sam xDelete
