My First "Lavinia"

I did warn you yesterday that I'd made a second entry for the LIM challenge this week. I used the same technique to achieve my stripes as here as I did for my striped candle's yesterday. I'm afraid that there will be no crafty scrumminess going in the post as no one guessed correctly.

This is what I used to get my stripes, my new Memory Box wrought iron fence die.
I just placed it onto my card using post it notes to mask the other areas then used a brush to stipple on the colour, easy as that! for this card I then inked up my Lavinia stamp and stamped it twice,creating a paler image with the second placing.
Don't forget that the Ladybugs have a big day planned tomorrow, I hope you all come and join in the fun. We'd love it if you could add our poster to your side bar so that as many crafters as possible join in!

I'm using my card for
Week 54LIM,One layer and stripes.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
