CAS Lavinia

I bet that when you think of Lavinia stamps you think of beautiful inked backgrounds, perfect scenes made with a collection of stamps??? I have to be honest, that's what I originally thought, then I had a play and found that although they certainly are stunning used as I thought, they also look pretty good when used simply like this, that's because the stamps themselves are gorgeous! 

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
BC25, Autumn,
CM27, Autumn,
R&Rcb17, Autumn,
RR64, Autumn, 
Simon Says, Stamp,
DCD136, Use brown,
CYP183, Metal,
MIM, Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,

p.s. if you have any Lavinia stamps and you might fancy joining in with this month's Autumn Challenge.

Might be CAS but it is so layered with complexity. Love all the elements. They work so well together and compliment each other! Awesome my friend!

You are right! That stamp does stand alone quite nicely! The resulting CAS look is very nice. I especially like the splash of color you added with the fishtail banners and the paperclip fits perfectly for our “Heavy Metal” Challenge at Craft Your Passion.
