Dreams and Delights

The card challenge on Scrapology this month has been sponsored by Tracey Dutton from Lavinia Stamps is challenging you to create a card based on 'Dreams and Delights'

Here are the two cards I had fun making for the design team gallery.

I used various Lavinia stamps to create these cards, lots of masking was involved for both of them. For the first card I used distress inks and a brayer to create the background on matt card. For the second one I tried Linda's Gelli plate with the prayer and inks.

I also used:
Black Bazzill
Greeting stamps are from Lili of the Valley
Scalloped edge scissors
Liquid Pearls & Stickles
Stampin' Up punches
8" x 8" card blanks from Craft Creations
Patterned papers from Basic Grey's Marrakech collection
Inks - Distress Inks, Adirondack dye ink pads, Memento, Versafine Pigment ink and Promarker pens

Pop over to Scrapology to see what the rest of the design team made for inspiration and have a go at our challlenge, there is a great prize on offer too!
