Thursday Thoughts

Today I'm sharing a card I made - and really enjoyed creating - for the challenge at Inkspirational.

What a fabulous word prompt! It had me immediately reaching for my much neglected, but enormously loved box of Lavinia stamps.

I can't begin to tell you how exciting it was to go way back to when I first started stamping, before I even had a blog, and put this card together. There was a time when all I wanted to do was to re-create the awesome designs that I saw Tracey demonstrate at craft shows and although my style has now evolved and is generally much more CAS I still adore her work and could watch her demonstrate for ever!

The moon was masked with a circle and the inks added using torn paper strips - all learnt from watching Tracey. The dragon and mushrooms were added using my misti tool to get a clear and dark image and then I stamped the tree branch frame and the magical star cascade. The stars wer glittered silly using a gel pen.

Stamps: Lavinia Stamps, Spring Trees, large Dragon & Slender Mushrooms; Stars from my stash & may also be vintage Lavinia
Inks: Ranger distress, dusty concord, chipped sapphire, bluepring sketch, wilted violet; Versafine, onyx black
Pen: Sakura gellyroll, clear star

Thanks you so much for visiting my blog today, it's been enormous fun having your compay.

And keep crafting!
