All Creatures Great & Small...

Clarity card challenge this month is animals. So I set about creating a card that I could enter. Here it is, I hope you like it.

I first started with a grid card, but I just couldn't come up with a background I was happy with.

I always find finishing a card the hardest, I loved what Barbara did on the letter set lesson where she wrote a message and inserted a card. So I looked up a few quotes and settled on " All Creatures Great & Small" once I had that done I had to figure out what I would use as the centre piece. That's when I decided to use the stamp stamps.
For the background I used the spice rainbow pad and cranberry.

Then I had to add something to just complete it, so I turned to guilding flakes, I love these.

Lavinia: at the stroke of midnight a magical door appears.

Hello Everyone,

I haven't been blogging for quiet a while, amazing how time just slips by. I have been following the various challenges, and I have finally managed to make another card for the Lavinia Challenge. So here it is. I hope you like it.

The inspiration for this card is from the Lavinia 2nd and 3rd DVD. My favourite colours are blues and greens, so for this card I have mainly used, Blue and Purple Adirondack inkpads, and the Onxy black versa fine for stamping of the images. I also used part of the Fairy Words Stamp, which I inked up with the versa mark pen, to just highlight the words I wanted to use and then brushed with the mica powders.

I love the Door stamp and the little fairies so my card is the idea of a magic door appearing only at midnight.
