I've been playing with an alcohol ink background I have had in my stash for a couple of months and decided today I would make something of it.
I decided to use Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink through the Funky Fossil "Funky Circle" Stencil over the alcohol ink background to create the bleached look pattern.
I used some Wow! Fab Foil in a copper colour to add some interest to areas too.
The stamped "Good Luck" sentiment, using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze Ink" is from a Simon Says Stamp set called "Clean Line Everyday" and die cut.

This afternoon I pulled my Visible Image stamps out for a play.
I used two Dylusions Ink Sprays for the background colour (Squeezed Orange and Bubblegum Pink).
Once dry, I stamped the flowers from the Visible Image "Imperfection is Beauty" stamp set in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink and "Summertime" orangne ink.
I used Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink the Visible Image "Two Tone" stencil to create the circles.
I splattered a white Posca pen over the tag and then drew horizontal lines from top to bottom, finishing by inking the edges of the tag in black ink.
Today I have played with my Lavinia Stamps, deciding to use a couple of stamps I've not used very often.
I used a gelli plate background I'd made a while back for the base and stamped the "Willow Arch" and the "Twisted Willow" to create an archway stamped in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink. I coloured it in with shades of brown Distress Oxide Inks and then stamped "Sacred Spells" script.
I used the Funky Fossil "Brick Wall" stencil with "Forest Moss" Distress Oxide Ink to create the look of a wall around the arch.
I stamped the "Stargazing" couple using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink. I multi stamped the "Twisted Vine Set" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.
Using Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink I stamped the "Fairy Barnacles" to create flowers growing up the wall like a cottage garden. I coloured the flowers with a mix of Oxide Inks and Signo pens, I also added some highlights to the card using a white Signo pen.
Finally, I stamped the "Once upon a dream" sentiment using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.
Lavinia Stamps have started a new Wellbeing group called "Reach out for Lavinia" so I have added this to their new group.
It is the last day of #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge for March.
I have used a stamp that came with issue 168 of Papercraft Essentials Magazine.
I stamped the heart and the Lawn Fawn sentiment (from their Simply Sentiment set) in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink. I coloured the heart using Distress Oxide Inks.

I have continued my play with Lavinia Stamps creating this card featuring one of the most recently released stamps "Finn" the fairy and "Zuri" the unicorn.
I used a gelli plate background I had made a while back. All stamping was in shades of Versafine Clair ink (Monarch, Shady Lane, Morning Mist and Nocturne).
Other Lavinia Stamps used on this are: Berry Leaves, Fairy Hive Set, Crow Set, Trees, Mini Meadow Mushroom, Tree Scene, Tree Branch and Climbing Ivy.
It seems ages since I have had a play with my Lavinia Stamps, so decided today was the day to put that right.
I had a small off-cut measuring 3"x3" of the background where I had used a wash of acrylic chalk paint to build up the colour, so decided to use that, rather than have it hanging about.
The colour shouted water scene to me, so I went with that theme. I stamped the tall "Seaweed" in Versafine Clair "Verdant".
I then stamped the seahorse, which is part of a set called "Sea Creatures" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.
Using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink I stamped the "Mystic Swirl", the "Twisted Vine Set" and the hanging "Fairy Hive Set".
I used a white Posca Pen to add highlights to the air bubbles and a Sakura gelly roll pen to add a little sparkle to the seahorse and the fairy hives.
It is Day 29 of the #thedailymarker30day Colouring Challenge - the penultimate day actually.
For this card, I have used a Papermania/Docrafts stamps called "Freshly Cut Flowers Floral Wreath" and a Papertrey Ink sentiment from their "Fillable Frames Sentiment" set, both stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. I have coloured the wreath using Distress Oxide Inks applied with a brush.
