Lavinia Challenge #1/2014 - Add Some Glitter

Wahoo! 2014! Good grief - another year gone by...........onwards and upwards, so here we go with the first challenge of the year from Lavinia Stamps - Add Some Glitter. If you haven't tried Lavinia yet then check out their website for some fab inspiration sight..........
I made this by cutting some cream card into squares and then stamping 2nd generation Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make a background before stamping over with different stamps and 1st generation Cranberry Adirondack Ink. Glitter is on each flower (yes really - go in close and you'll see it!) and then each tile is matted onto red card stock before arranging on a 6x6 card.

Stamps used - Background - Fairy Words Tiles - Zen Allium , Wild Flower, Lavender and Group Poppies.

And now for something completely different.................

..........a tag made with lots of dies and the lovely Zentangle Butterfly stamp stamped again in Cranberry Adirondack Ink (love that colour!) . Couldn't manage to cut the antennae out so added some gold coloured wire and pearls to replace them. Glamour Dust sprinkled on the butterfly and flower to complete it.

Stamp used - Zentangle Butterfly
