Bright colours at Lavinia Stamps

Hi there, how's your weekend been? I've had a lovely lazy, crafty day today (although I do feel a bit guilty as I should have been weeding lol). I decided to have a play with my Lavinia stamps for this months Lavinia challenge which is to use Bright Colours.

I printed off the little fairy houses and stamped the tree and the fairy and coloured the images using Graph'It markers and Flex markers. I created the grass with markers and then added the sky and a ray of sunshine using PanPastels. I also added some more grass with the edge of an angle slice sofft sponge. Next job with to stamp the foliage using memento ink. To finish off I just used an eraser to life off the PanPastel and create a dappled effect in the ray of sunshine and also to remove any PanPastel that had gone on to the image - thats the beautiful of Pans with this kind of project, no masking required lol!

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
CRAFT: Fantasy
Crafty Calendar: Sunshine and showers
Dream Valley: things with wings
Sisterhood of Crafters: anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown: make your own background

I've spend this afternoon watching Zathura, omg I just love that film, it always make me giggle - I don't think i'll ever grow up somehow lol
Thanks for popping by and for your kind comments, they always make me smile
