Lavinia Stamps Challenge 1 2015 - Anything Goes

Here we go with the new challenge from Lavinia for this month - Anything Goes. It's been great fun each month over 2014 to see all your different interpretations of the monthly themes, so looking forward to seeing what 2015 brings!
Each month there is a prize of a £40 voucher to spend in the Lavinia shop AND you don't need a blog to enter (just email in via the website) so why not give it a go.

My samples for this month use different techniques and mediums to create thank you cards , so important to say thank you  for the lovely gifts I was lucky enough to receive at Christmas.

Made using Fairy Pods and Brushos.

Made using Distress , Versamark and Archival Inks with Floral Spray in pink and Fairy Pods in blue. This was designed for putting in the post- it's all done on one layer by masking off sections. 

And my final one made using Distress Inks and Group Poppies, Lavender, Seed Pods, Dandelions, Zen Leaf, Secret Night and Ivy.

Don't forget to take a look around the rest of the team's blogs for more inspiration -

Thank you for looking, really hope you enjoy having a go this month - it could be you picking up that prize !
