Allsorts 485: Create a Scene

It's time for  a new challenge at Allsorts, and this week it is  my turn to host. I love cards with scenes (although they are a little challenging for me), and so I selected the theme of .............

  Create a scene.

I think this is the perfect opportunity to use silhouette stamps, but you may create your scene any way you like, maybe with dies or masking, and of course any type of stamps! Come play along with us for a chance to win a gift certificate from Swedish House Crafts.

This was an opportunity for me to ink up the rest of my new Lavinia stamps. And now that I have used all but a tiny castle from my first Lavinia stamps order, I feel like I am allowed to purchase more of these beautiful stamps :)  I always feel bad when I buy new stamps while I still have several that haven't been inked yet!

I created the background by using homemade masks and distress inks on  Bristol Vellum Paper. The cat, fairies, fairy dust and mushrooms are all stamps by Lavinia, and the puffy flowers and grass are stamps by Penny Black (sets Enamor and Nature's Gifts). The rays were done with a rays stencil by Stampers Anonymous. I applied some stardust Stickles Glitter to the fairy dust and fairy wings to give the card a little sparkle. 

I am also sharing my card here:
