Lockdown Lavinia homework week 8

Hi all, 
I hope you are feeling well.
As it is Monday , it is time for some more 
Lockdown Lavinia Homework.
I can’t believe that we are on to week 8.

So this week I thought we would create a little gift. 

This is four cards 

Each with a matching envelope 

And all wrapped up in matching tissue, tied with a ribbon. 

This would be a beautiful gift, just because. 
Just to show somebody that you are thinking about them.

I started off by creating my backgrounds. 
Now this really is a less is more technique. 
So please don’t be heavy handed with the Brusho powder. 

Just a light sprinkle, 

Followed by a light spritzing  with water, 

When dry, I added some stamping , a moon mask, some colour and a lovely sentiment. 

All the envelopes were stamped to match. 

When stamping the matching tissue, it is advisable to have some copier paper underneath, 
as the ink can go through the tissue. 

I hope you can join in with the homework, 
I do love to see what you all create. 

Take care everyone, 
Coffee time here, 

Much love and hugs
