Oh how I Love Lavinia!

If there is one stand I just have to visit at the Harrogate show it's the Lavinia Stamps stand. Twice a year I make a bee line for the stand to treat myself to fairyland stamps galore. Its the only time I buy Lavinia so it really is a treat. I spent a happy couple of hours making these cards

I don't have my brayer with me so the backgrounds are brushed on then the images stamped on. Have a go with brushes (I use shaving brushes) if you find brayering difficult, the results are almost the same.

I'm feeling tons better today, the meds are doing their stuff, I've been out into Harrogate, and found some fabulous bits and bobs in the charity shops. Can't wait to start playing with them!

Hope you've had a good day too
X Michelle

I love the Lavinia stamps too. They are what I call 'grown up fairy stamps'! I really can't get to grips with a brayer so duster brushes are my way to go. As always your cards are stunning Michelle.

Oooo these are lovely Michelle, on the look out for some more of their stamps on Saturday at Port Sunny. Not too late to enter in Kate's Journal Challenge, I snook my February one in there as well. Spent so long on it as I didn't like it :(
The challenge is on Facebook as well, with some fab crafters. Hope you are well? Elizabeth xxx
