Happy Days

Good morning everyone, 
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
For those Mums , who are reading this, I hope you had a lovely day yesterday.
I had a lovely morning being a Grandma,
so that was me in a happy place. 
Today I have some very exciting news.
I am so proud to have been asked to join the Lavinia Design Team. 
After working with Tracey and Kevin for a while and getting to know their company I have decided that the time is right.

So I have a Lavinia card to share with you today.

This was inspired by the team for their April Challenge 
Buds and Blossoms 

Here is how I created it. 

I love this honeysuckle stamp, and it looks lovely with gold embossing powder. 

Then out with my Brusho powders, look.
I told you these little pots would be very useful...

Next I spritzed with water,,.
I love how this moves the colour...deep breath....

Some more splats with the Brusho water mix 

When dry I added some background stamping and distress Oxide ink around the edges. 

Some matting and layering, 
Followed by a Lavinia word and a black bow. 

I love the detail of these stamps.

If you would like to enter the challenge you can find it here 

I am so lucky to be working with such lovely craft companies, who have such great ethics, 
hand draw their images and are just such genuine fabulous human beings

Just before I go,
I have a magazine commission to work on 
A photo from the weeeknd

Thanks for popping in 

Take care all
Much love and hugs
