A Forest Gathering

Good afternoon everyone, 
Wow , it is March already.
This year is certainly flying .
Happy St David’s Day...

I am still struggling with this lovely cold, but I do feel a little better after a walk with Karl and Eric and a 
nice hot chocolate .
It is so windy outside today, but lovely if you wrap up warm. 
Just good to not have rain.

Today it is a new Challenge over at the Lavinia website 
The new theme is
A Forest Gathering 

This is my inspiration, and here is how I created it. 
I had no idea where this design was going, 
So I just started by adding some ink onto some card 
Thank you Billy...

I added some water splats and left it to dry. 

Next I needed a focal point, and then some creatures. 

Followed by more stamping. 

And next some colouring pencils to give more detail. 
I used a black and a white charcoal pencil, and then blended more black ink around the edges. 
This gives more atmosphere to the  design. 

Finally I wanted some sparkle, but only in the central area where the gathering was taking place. 

Oh yes, I do love this. 
Only it isn’t easy to photograph, sorry. 

I do hope that you will pop along to the website and enter the challenge, 
The winner is chosen at random and wins £40 to spend on Lavinia stamps. 

Enjoy the rest of your day 

Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx
