Magical Worlds At Allsorts Challenge

Hello and welcome! It's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge where Tracy it hosting this week. She chose the theme of "Magical Worlds", one of my favorites for sure and a perfect chance to get out some of my new Lavinia stamps. Not that I need an excuse but even though I've been making several cards with them I still struggle with creating scenes for the beautiful fairies and don't use them as much as I should.

We do have a prize this week, a beautiful Lavinia fairy stamp from the Allsorts box of prizes that Brenda will send as soon as she can get to the post office. Hope you can join us for your chance to win!


This quarantine life hasn't only gotten me to subscribe to a Misfits Market produce delivery service and and a subscription to  Mrs. Meyers cleaning supplies, but I've also decided to order a few new Lavinia stamps last month. I've found a few retailers in the US - Lavinia World, DelBellos Designs and ASC Designs. I ordered from each of these in the past, most recently again from DelBellos designs but received good service from all three retailers. 

So for this card my inspiration came from the sentiment and I chose mostly green inks and dancing fairies. I've used the dancing fairies stamp before but all other stamps are new to me and they are all by Lavinia. My card base is my usual Bristol Vellum



I started out by adding a circle to mask the moon, then used Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks/oxides. A hand cut mask was used to mimic some hills in this magical forest of  "Lunar Buds".

After my background was inked, I stamped the moon inside the masked circle and the lunar buds using Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink and then stamped the Celestial Tree, the Fairy Chain and sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. Before mounting onto the white card base, I ran the Chipped Sapphire inkpad along the edge, dabbed off the excess ink with a paper because somehow it always ends up smearing on my white card stock if I skip this step.
