Have a Magical Day

Good Afternoon,

I had a play this weekend to make a card for Brenda's 5th Blogaversary Challenge which you can find here, the challenge being to use a favourite crafting item and I thought I would use one of my favourite stamps.  I have had this Lavinia Stamp for quite a few years and when my granddaughters were young I think each of them had a card at one time bearing this image, but I haven't used it for some time, I like it because as it is fantasy you can use whatever colours you like (I used lots of my bright colours which don't get used very often)

Image - Lavinia stamps
Colouring Medium - Copics
Papers - My Mind's Eye
Roses - Wild Orchid
Punched branches
Sentiment, Pearls, Ribbon, Toadstool charm, Stickles

Challenges Entered:
Just Add Ink - Just add Stripes
Crafty Ribbons - Ribbon n Bows

  5. I love this Pat - I have this stamp but did not have a lot of luck stamping it out -- too much black I think. How did you do this. I love living in a fantasy world -- shame on me.
