Mooch's Fairy {Lavinia World #27}

Hey everyone, welcome to a new Lavinia World Challenges! The theme is anything goes using a stamped image.  The winner of each challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to Lavinia World.  We'd love to have you play along for a chance to win.

The following Lavinia stamps were used to create today's project:

To create the background for today's project, I started out with white cardstock and blended several colors of Distress Oxides together.  Once I was satisfied with the way that looked, I stamped the Background Script using VersaMark ink.  I then brushed on some Perfect Pearls (Blush) on top of the ink.  The Perfect Pearls gives the background a very subtle, shimmery look when held in the right light. The photo below shows you how subtle the Background Script stamped image is on this piece.

I began building my scene by stamping the Stones at the bottom of the cardstock with VersaFine Clair ink (Morning Mist).  Next I placed Mooch on top of the stones.  (He was stamped with VersaFine Clair (Twilight). )  Fairy Buttercups were added to either side of Mooch with Distress Oxide ink).  Finally, the Dragonfly Keeper was stamped with more VersaFine Clair ink (Fantasia).

I added Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker to the lantern and framed my scene using a Poppy Stamp die (Stitchwork Rectangle Frames).  This was die cut from white cardstock and then I used the direct to paper method to add more Fantasia ink to the frame.

What a soft, beautiful background, with a darling glow perfectly placed around the fairy's lantern, Anne! I like the way the words show up faintly in your picture, too. It really does look like a misty, mystical night, doesn't it? Beautiful card! xx

This is so pretty! Love the subtlety of the words in your background and the pretty halo around the fairy as she casts a spell over Mooch! A beautiful scene.

Anne Buckingham said...

I love fairies and cats, so I love this card. The background is made even more interesting due to you making plant life stamp in a light shade that fades into the background. It is a lovely card.

Alina Florea said...

Lori Kobular said...
