Allsorts 483: Things with Wings

I have been wanting to purchase some Lavinia stamps for a loooong time, and finally decided on which ones to get first a few months ago (it was not easy because I pretty much have all of their stamps on my wish list but I had to keep the order under $100). Well, it took me another few months to finally ink them up. I know that sounds crazy ... but these types of cards are just out of my comfort zone so I kept putting it off. But, you know how it is, you can't get better at something if you're not trying it, and today's theme at Allsorts challenge was the perfect opportunity to finally ink up this gorgeous fairy.

 Our theme this week is "Things with Wings".

I used a large circle die cut to mask the "moon" and then inked the card stock with Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans distress inks and then removed the mask. Next I stamped the image with the help of my Tonic Stamp Platform using Versafine Onyx Ink and heat embossed with clear powder. The "spiral of spells" was stamped over the masked moon using Stormy Sky ink again, but stamped off once before stamping, because I wanted the words to be "barely there" ...but I kind of wish I hadn't stamped off, they just turned out a little bit lighter than I wanted, but they are more visible in real life.  

The poppies and willow were first stamped with stormy sky ink, then with versafine onyx ink. 
Framed the image with a retired Stampin Up card stock (I think the color is Brocade Blue) It's a perfect match for the Stormy Sky distress ink. The card base is Neenah linen textured card stock. A sticky rhinestone was place in the center of the spiral spell sentiment.
