Lavinia Challenge Blog 4 - Spring Colours

Hi - huge thanks to everyone who entered last month's challenge, loads of smashing entries! Well done to the winner, I know you'll have fun picking out £40 worth of goodies from the Lavinia web shop. Hope you'll all have a go this month where our theme is Spring Colours - remember you don't need to blog, just email your entry in via the link on the website or click here - couldn't be easier!

My two entries for the design team I hope reflect the lovely fresh colours of spring, green, lemon and lilac with a sprinkle of other colours too.

 My first one is a tag made with the Lavinia Stamp 'Erin'  and coloured with my pens with just a touch of Glamour Dust on her wings. I am also entering my tag into the Graph'it Colour Challenge - Springtime Pastels .
 My second one is a sewing project made with Lavinia digi stamp 'Zen Houses' , such clear images printed onto fabric and then sewn into whatever you wish. Check out my tutorials section - demo 1 and 2 for how to do this simple process and why not have a go at making some spring bunting for your home - see demo 4 for tips and techniques on making the bunting!
Well I'm hoping the cold weather has finally disappeared, so looking forward to some sunshine..........thank you for looking and don't forget to have a go this month at the Lavinia Challenge Blog - Good Luck!
