I've been having a play today with some of my NBUS (never before used schtuff) so that I can join in with Darnell's challenge and also try out some Lavinia stamps which were a magazine freebie.
These are the first Lavinia stamps I've used and the first card I've made using a silhouette stamp so it was a bit of 'stamp and see what happens' - although I didn't expect it to look anything like it does!! First off I used pink ink to stamp but it was too pale so I got the red ink and overstamped just the fairy. I actually got a bit of a shadow with the pink as I didn't manage to line the stamp up properly, but luckily it does look like shadow. I used a pearlescent card base, the paper is Prima 'doodle deux' and the pearls, gems and sentiment are from my stash.
Okay so you've probably never seen a red fairy before but maybe she just spent a little too long sunbathing!! Another style I shall definitely have to master and I think her next outing will be in black.
I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
NBUS challenge 'anything goes with a friendship theme'
Lavinia Stamps challenge 'add some beads or gems'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'fairy day'
Dream Valley challenge 'monochrome'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'ink it up' (3rd entry)
Thanks for your visit - I really do appreciate it. I have been visiting you the past few days but Mr Blogger is being a bit of a nuisance sometimes when I try to leave comments and telling me it's a 'whoops error'
