Lavinia, You're A Gem!



Morning! 
It's time for a new theme at Lavinia and the challenge that we are setting you this time is 
So really simple, just make something using your
and add a gem.
You don't even need to have a blog to enter and be in with a chance of winning a £40 Lavinia voucher as you can simply email in a copy of your make and we can add you to our blog!



I used my latest crafty buy to colour my images this time,
Spectrum Noir Aqua markers.
I need some practice but I'm already feeling the love!
They are so different to Copics that I'm used to using but I love the look that they give. When I coloured the Lily image, don't ask me why but I felt the need to distress all of my edges, something that I hardly ever do, I just feel that it suits the water colour effect of the image.
The second card I simply cut out my image using the ScanNcut and coloured it in.




I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-

AGOAC139, CAS,
ATCAS58, Distress,
SCYS9, Birthday,
LIM213, Makes me happy. (my new Aqua Markers)


Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
