Hello and welcome! Another week has come and gone, and we have a new theme at Allsorts challenge!
It's Tracy's week to host and she chose the fun theme of "Magical Worlds", so get out those fairy, gnome, dragon, mermaid, alien, etc. stamps and create something fun! We have a prize from Lavinia Stamps to give away this week, a beautiful Lavinia Fairy as well as a stencil from Lavinia, so hope you'll get a chance to join us!

I started collecting Lavinia stamps a few years ago and have several fairies now along with some of their florals and trees, the one I used today is probably one of the first I purchased. This one is called Fairytale.
Before removing the sticky notes, I splattered a bit of water onto the background for the fun distress ink/water reaction, then removed the sticky notes.
The fairies were all stamped using Versafine Onyx ink. I also used the "Spiral of Spells" stamp, also from Lavinia along the edges of the card for some magical words. The small fairies are 2 of the Three Dancing Fairies and then I stamped the stars (also from Lavinia) to fill in some of the white circles.
Before adhering the the card front to the base, I ran the Blueprint Sketch ink pad along the edges for some definition.
If you are in the UK you know you can find Lavinia stamps directly from their shop. And there are now several US retailers who sell these beautiful stamps as well. I purchased mine from Del Bellos Designs and ASC Supplies (both Etsy Shops) and now there are also some private retailers selling these stamps via Amazon as well.
