Pink and Blue

While I was surfing around the net this week, wasting away a few hours, I came across the Lavinia Stamps Challenge Blog where their challenge this month  is "pink or blue or both!!"..... well, I can remember that a few years ago I went to the Doncaster Craft Show and bought a Lavinia Stamps clear stamp set called dandelions, I loved it, then did the usual.... got it home, played with it, put it in the drawer and ......forgot all about it. So coming across this site jogged my memory of this lovely stamp set, so I dug it out, made a background by spraying pink ink onto my craft mat, adding some water, then smooshing and mopping up the  ink with the paper, once it was dry I splattered blue ink, then stamped the beautiful dandelions then added some clear star gelli roll pen on the fronds to give a shimmery effect that you cannot see on the photo). I couldnt use any more stamps as I dont have any more Lavinia Stamps.....YET!!!!

  3. Gorgeous card, Jane, such a vibrant colour. When linking back to the challenge, you need to link your actual Lavinia blog post, and not just your blog. That way we can go straight to the card you've entered. Just mentioning this in case you didn't know. Good luck in the draw,
