Lavinia stamps October challenge 

As we approach the middle of October I thought I would share some inspiration for the All Hallows eve theme challenge. For this card I thought l would use a the Dreams and delights cutting file. maybe it’s where Willow the witch lives. 

For the background I used squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, faded jeans and seedless preserves distress inks. I cut the dreams and delights file from black card, used a white pencil on the vines then coloured them with a green metallic pencil then sprayed with spray and shine. I raised this slightly with pin flair glue. I stamped Winnie the witch with black versafine highlighted her hair and sleeves with green metallic pen, then cut her out and placed her on top so she was raised up too, next I stamped the fairy web on the four corners with versafine then brushed over with cosmic shimmer dust. Then added one of the spiders from the bug set

For the background, I found some multicoloured netting, I placed this on some black card before mounting the main image. 

I hope this inspires your creativity and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.

I had great fun with this sketch, had lots of ideas, my final choice was to use one of the crazy birds, coloured with spectrum noir pencils. The background was done with distress inks, salty ocean, peacock feathers, cracked pistachios, evergreen bough. Used iced spruce on the stencil. 
The presents were coloured with faded denim distress ink and highlighted with clear sparkle pen. 
Trying very hard to use the free stamps from magazines lately, the sentiment came from a creative stamping magazine. I do hope you like my creation, I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

I also used this to colour the stencil design.
The hanging lantern, words and stars were inked with faded jeans oxide ink.
The background was inked with broken china oxide that was placed on mat, spritzed with water then twisted in a circular  motion, loved the way it looked like the moon in the centre so left it as it was,
highlighted edge with spiced marmalade, highlighted hanging lanterns with orange gel pen, finally used white pen on chinese lanterns
 Good luck with your entries.
