Lavina Stamps Creative Challenge - A Place to Escape to

For the past few years I have been writing Step by Step projects for Lavinia Stamps but you'll now find me posting more regularly as a member of the design team, something I'm really thrilled about.

Each month, Lavinia Stamps runs a Creative Challenge, with a different theme, and the chance to win £40 worth of their stamps.  The winner is chosen entirely at random using Python Random Generator, and you don't need a blog to enter, just click on the link here to find out what to do.

For this month's theme of 'A Place to Rest' I had a play with Tracey's technique of using Colorbox inkpads and Brusho inks on the gelli plate.  If you've not seen the videos, you'll find one here, but I warn you, it's addictive!!  I also played with White Brusho ink for the first time (on her wings) and the Brusho Sprinkle Its, which add a touch of sparkle.

Versafine - Onyx Black (currently on sale)

Somewhere I find rest is playing with paper, inks and stamps so I also made a little matchbook for this challenge. 

Again I used a gelliprint created with Colorbox ink and Brushos.  You can just see a smidge of the previous project's gelli print in there too.

Inside I stacked a variety of inked, stamped mini pages, secured with a staple.  these are around 4.5cm square + so are teeny, tiny.  I love working small.

Zen Thistle (this is one of my faves but is being discontinued; grab it while you can!!)


  1. Wow! Two posts in two days!!! Just spent a while watching Tracy's videos and looking forward to trying this technique! Your card looks great as does your little matchbook! Hugs, Chrisx

    1. I'm hoping that the demands of two design teams means I'll be posting more regularly again!!
      You soooo need to try this technique, you'll love it


Thanks for leaving a comment; it makes my day!!
