Bright and Beautiful in a Fairy Glen



Good morning again everyone, here I am with my second post of the day, this is my tag for the Lavinia Stamp Blog Challenge where to theme is Bright And Beautiful.

 

Over the weekend I had  been playing about with some of the newer colours of DIs and some blending sponge (which was a freebie with a magazine) and used these to colour the tag as they were out and ready to go.  The different colours were dabbed onto the tag overlapping in places then sprayed with a mister and allowed to run into one another. Once dry I stamped the Lavinia Fairy House in black Stazon and clear embossed it.  The Lavinia lavender stamp  and wild flower were then stamped using barn door DI, the vines/leaves at the top are part of a stamp set but am not sure who produced it, these too were stamped in barn door DI. 

 

The tag was backed with black card to give a contrast edge and a ribbon was coloured with the three colours and stamped with the flowers and vine stamps before attaching to the tag.  The black backing is not clear on the photo as I put it on a black background to photograph it so the bright colours would show up.
 

Really enjoyed playing with these bright colours and my lovely Lavinia stamps, a few people will be getting some bright and beautiful birthday cards to brighten their day this year!
