Lavinia Fairy

I love this Lavinia fairy stamp and it was free with a magazine!  Amazing!  I combined it with some other Lavinia stamps too.

The background is various Distress Inks, water and Glimmer Mist.  All the stars are made with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and a Splodgeaway mask.  The stamping is done with Black Adirondak and the flowers are made with a white sheer ribbon which has been coloured with Distress Inks and water then I cut little circles and heated them until they started to crinkle up.  I then stuck the layers together with Glue Dots and added a pearl in the centre. The fairy dust being sprinkled by the lovely fairy is Liquid Pearls.  I mounted the picture straight on a purple card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Lavinia Stamps - add some Ribbon - I have never entered a Lavinia challenge before!
Scrapology - anything goes.
Buckwells Crafty Challenge - anything goes - this is a brand new challenge blog.

Thank you so much for visiting me,  I really appreciate it!  I hope you have had a lovely weekend.  I am looking forward to tomorrow. My Daughter, Son-in-law and Granddaughter Freya are visiting - I can't wait!  Take care.  Christine xxx

Hi Chris, this is so lovely! Such a sweet colour and the stamp is gorgeous. I was on holiday in Ireland last May and bought a magazine there with a gorgeous set of Indigo Blue stamps. Couldn't believe it, for that price!! They don't have that in the Netherlands, bummer!! Have a great weekend, hugs Frea
