Hey it's Tuesday

Gosh did it rain last night!  But this morning I've woken up to sunshine and blue skies, so looks like a good day ahead.

Today's card uses my favourite Lavinia stamps and a colour scheme from CAS colours & sketches. I never have the correct colours, but do my best to match them as closely as possible and then my photo changes them up to different hues.  Apologies!!!

I love the joyful abandoned nature of this fairy stamp, it's so dainty and charismatic.  Then I just had to add some sparkle to the star sprinkles, the wings and the garland. I think another time I would try embossing the fairies to make them pop just that little bit more.


Stamps Lavinia,  Dancing till dawn, stars 1, sentiment
Ink: Memento, pistachio & London fog; Adirondack, watermelo
Paper & card: Basic Grey, lemonade & from my stash
Embellishments: Stickles, star dust
Die: Spellbinders, labels 8

Thank you for looking.  Also for all the lovely comments, so appreciated!
