Lavina World Challenge #16

Hi everyone, it's time for the next challenge at Lavinia World Challenges.  Please check it out and join in the fun. 

I'm using the Christmas Eve stamp today.  Because I wanted to add assorted colors, I placed the stamp on my MISTI and inked portions of the image in the colors I wanted.

Once inked, I die cut the image with a Spellbinders die.  While the image was still within the die, I inked around it with light blue ink.

The effect is a  nice white border where the die was sitting.

The stamped image was matted with a larger green die and then added to a card created with assorted layers of pattern papers.

I also created another card using a different die.  To finish I added gold stickles to the trees and the Fairy Merry Christmas phrase.

Would love to see what you create for Challenge #16.  The winner of the challenge will receive a

$15 gift certificate to Lavinia World to shop for more goodies.   Remember there is a new challenge every other Thursday.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi, Steph! Thanks for showing how you inked up your stamp. Those black fairies around your stunningly shaded Christmas tree are just sweet as can be! It's a lovely, magical scene, and reminds me that I'd better ask some fairy friends to light up the top of my Christmas tree! Merry Christmas, teamie! hugs, de
