Lavinia Challenge 2 - Bright and Beautiful

All things bright and beautiful.......... this month's theme is open ! Last month we had loads of smashing entries - well done to the winner Barry, why don't you have a go this month to try and win a £40 voucher to spend in the Lavinia Webshop. You don't even need a blog you can enter by email - details are on the site.


Here's a card I made simply by laying down some distress inks into water on watercolour card and when dry I stamped with a variety of Lavinia stamps and highlighted with some Stickles.


I enjoyed making this canvas at a friends place the other week, great fun and lots of laughs! Could not get it to photo well as the gold wax was reflecting all the time, hey ho can't be helped. I covered a flat canvas with different acrylics after stencilling some images with paste and letting it dry. Then I stamped some Lavinia stamps and highlighted with white pen and gilding wax.


So hope you enjoy having a go this month - and don't forget to take a tour around the team's blogs - get yer shades ready though for some real bright and beautiful designs ! Thanks for looking x
