Lavinia Stamps May 2019 Monthly Challenge (sample 1)

Every month, Lavinia Stamps has a monthly challenge where those who enter have a chance to win £40 of vouchers to spend on their site.  As part of the Design Team, we are asked to create three samples based on the challenge theme.  This is the first of the my three samples.  

The theme for the May challenge is "Make It Bright".

I have had the stamp "Zen Leaf 2" for some time and maybe only used it once or twice, so I decided to challenge myself  to use it in an alternative way.  I decided to use Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink and multi stamp the image in a fan shape.

In Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink I stamped the "Floral Spray" in the bottom right hand corner to pull the leaves into a fan shape.

I then decided to colour the image in using Promarker Pens in: Tulip Yellow, Pink Carnation, Orchid and Amethyst shades of ink.  

I stamped the "Once Upon A Dream" sentiment and the "Fairy Foragers" in Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" shade of ink.  Finally, I added areas of glittery sparkle on the floral fan and the fairies by using Signo Silver, Violet and Blue glitter pens.
