ABC challenge

ABC challenge this week is "M for Masking" so one I just had to join in with as it gives me the perfect opportunity to do some brayering and masking with my fairies.

All stamps used are from Lavinia. I started by placing a circle mask onto a piece of gloss cardstock to create a moon, then brayering over with a Big and Juicy Hydrangea inkpad, then more brayering over a mask of torn paper to create mountains (I promise I will shortly be doing a 'moon and sun' tutorial as requested). All stamping was done with versfaine black and embossed with detail clear. A piece of ribbon is tied round the card to finish and I added Inkssential white here and there to add some dimension.

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous - I love those colours and I do love Lavinia stamps, even if I'm struggling with getting good images from them. B&J Hydrangea is also one of my favourite colour combinations in ink pads!

  9. I am so in awe of your talent for making these beautiful cards Brenda. Looking forward to a tutorial but I have watched videos of the ladies from Lavinia and Clarity and I still haven't mastered it. Will keep trying when I've got the time to just 'play'.
