Check out the gorgeous image that I used this time,
It is Winnie Wonderland Watch by Polkadoodles one of sponsors this time, you can visit the challenge blog for full details of both of our sponsors this time.
I coloured the image using Copics and Polychromos then fussy cut it out, Embossed and distressed my background then added my image using 3d pads, hanging the pocket watch from the perfect piece of gold lace. I then used some stickles to add sparkle to the butterfly's wings and  just a few gold sequins to the background.

Create Your Own Vision.

It's time for a new Lavinia challenge and the theme for the month of May is

For my card this time I created my background using Distress oxide inks before stamping Fairy House, I then added some interest to my background stamping Creeping vine and Background script before stamping Stones to form a path to follow to reach the houses. I then stamped Spellbound onto my white card using Versafine. I worked out where I wanted my "Vision" to sit then used my scary blade to cut around my fairy so that I could slide my "vision" behind.

About a year ago I bought more than a few lovely hearts and plaques from here and I thought it was about time that I started using some. I had promised some lovely little ladies that I would make them something so knowing how much they love fairies I created these. 
I rubbed my oxides onto a mat, sprayed them with water and moved the hearts through the mix. Once dry I stamped onto them. For Ava's I used my very first Lavinia fairy, Luna,  I then stamped the Moon and Stars adding stickles.

For Isla's I stamped Spellbound using Versafine, added Willow to the edges adding Stars and stickles.

For Tegan's I stamped Fairytale, again adding stars, for this one I stamped the edges with Creeping vine adding the obligatory stickles. The names on each heart were created by stamping individual letters onto white card, cutting each one out and inking the edges before gluing each one in place.
Three happy girlies!

I am entering the following challenges:-
Love to Create 9, Mixed media,
HIMCR299, Freestyle,
PDELP170, Anything but a card.
