Oh my, it's been a while....
Lavinia fairies to show today, with a couple of birthday cards, one for my lovely Mom, one for...erm, well, not saying who, but someone extra special!
Variations on a theme, I used my favourite little Lavinia fairies, on an inked background. The edges are heat embossed with a pearl powder. There's also lots of sparkle on the flowers and fairy wings, but I didn'tpick it up on the photo.
The finished cards are 7 inches square. Kinda pleased with these two!

Trying out the ipad app for blogger, so please excuse any weird formatting!
This is a badly taken photo of a butterfly picture commission for a little girl. Pink was the order of the day, so pink it was!
It needed the shot of hot pink to make it slightly less saccharine. Must have been ok, it led to another commission from the same person!

Today is my brother's birthday, and also it's his son's, so happy birthday Matt and Jack, hope it's a wonderful one!
Jack's card is A4, so it's a whopper!
Matt's is hand drawn by me, nervously whilst waiting for my lovely husband to finish his taekwondo grading in Bristol. Happily, it all worked out and he's now a 2nd Dan black belt, woohoo!

So, I joined a moo swap. Yep, I know I know... what's a moo? Well it's very little swap card- teeny tiny really- 2.9x6,9cm. Sounds a bit too small, but actually I loved working in miniature. MInd you, I am an ATC girl at heart!
The theme was the sky's the limit, so obviously I went for dragons. Well, you do, don't you?
These are probably larger on the screen than they are in real life!
The background is splodged Distress Inks and the images are miniature ones from Lavinia. The edges are heat embossed with gold, although it's not showing up, grrrr. Oh, and I sparkled the moon.
I'll enter this in to the Simon Says Wednesday challenge, which is anything goes
and into the Sprinkle of Imagination monthly anything goes challenge- I hope I'm allowed to enter more than once.

I'm a fantasy fan. Love me a spot of fantastic fiction or an epic fantasy film. When I'm feeling particularly inspired by castles and kings and fairy domains, my Lavinia stamps tend to get inked up.
I've said it often (and this isn't something I say lightly- those who've seen the size of my stamp collection will confirm that I know what I'm talking about), Lavinia stamps are some of the most precise stamping stamps out there. They stain and look like they'll be squidgy and wobbly edged, just like most other clear stamp you've tried, but trust me, they stamp perfectly. I use a versafine onyx black ink pad and the cobination is superb.
I should be on commission!
