Once Upon a Fairy Dream -- for Lavinia World Challenges

It's the 3rd Thursday of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at the Lavinia World Challenge Blog.  This is challenge #7 already!  Time flies when you are having so much fun! Challenges are Anything Goes, as long as you use an acrylic or rubber stamp.  Lavinia Stamps are not a requirement, however, if you do use a Lavinia Stamp in your project, your chances are doubled or winning a prize of a gift certificate to the Lavinia World store, based in the US.

I love to hang clothes on the line.  I think I am in the very small minority with this rather old-fashioned habit of mine, but I think it saves electricity, and I like the way they smell coming in from the line.  This quaint yet quirky habit of mine may be what drew me to the Fairy Washing Line stamp.  It's the focal point of today's card:

I stamped the Fairy Washing Line with Versafine Clair ink - Rain Forest, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the Once Upon a Dream sentiment with a watermark ink pad and heat set it with white embossing powder.  Next, I stamped the Stars 2 Mini repeatedly on the top 3rd of the card.  I used watermark ink again, this time, heat embossing with Pearl Blue embossing powder.

Lavinia World has a great selection of Distress Oxide Inks, and I love to blend with them!  On this card, I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Shaded Lilac, and Stormy Sky.

I backed my stamped and inked piece with black card stock, then a designer paper from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  You'll find many pretty papers there.

Do some shopping at the Lavinia World Store, then join us at Lavinia World Challenges!
