Aurora burst - Lavinia World Challenge #27



Hello, helo
it is the third Thursday of the month and this can only mean one thing: 

a new challenge over at Lavinia World Challenge - #27 :)

Here is my inspiration for you, hope you like it and you will give it a try! This time I played with yupo paper and alcohol inks and some alcohol lift ink :)

The card recipe

1. I cut the card bases from 300gsm white card stock.
2.  Cut the base panel: yupo paper 
3. Played with Alcohol inks and drops of rubbing alcohol.
After watching Tracey's tutorial I decided to give it a try at the alcohol lift ink technique so I added a line of ink and then using the brayer I spread it downwards
4. Using a piece of Neenah white paper I pressed and imprinted the pattern. i was really impressed with the result.
5. Stamped Aurora with Black Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
6. Using the small stamp from the Star burst set I added the upper pattern, this time I used Archival black ink
7. Using a wrapped piece of card stock and wilted violet distress ink I added some shades on the bottom part of the panel
8. As final touches I decided to use a white gel pen and add outline the main stamp.

nothing else ... what do you think?

Poppies card - Lavinia World Challenge #24



Spring is almost here and I don't know about you, but for me, with these times, things seem to get a different dimension. I feel that things will definitely change after all this situation will end. 
I have had some struggling in creating a card, for days I could not find my mojo.

But when I finally managed I came up with this card, which is my inspiration for you for the new Lavinia World Challenge - #24 :)


The card recipe
1. I cut the card bases from 300gsm white card stock.
2. Added two strips of pink washi tape with hearts patterns.
3. Cut the base panel: neenah white paper - 220gsm
4. Heat embossed the background script stamp with Golden Heat Embossing powder and Versafine ink
5. Using Distress Oxides - Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage, I colored the background and then with a linen cloth I wiped the embossed part to restore the golden shine.
6. Stamped the poppies using Distress inks - Abandoned Coral, Pine Needles and Peeled Paint
7. On a piece of thick velum I heat embossed the fairy from the set - I used glittery red embossing powder, I have had it in my stash for years 
8. I die cut the stamped part using an oval nesting die
9. Added the fairy on top of the flower and added the panel on the background one using double adhesive foam tape
10. As final touches I added some Glossy Accents drops.
And ta da! This is it :)
