Pick A Colour, Any Colour!

There's another colour challenge this month at Lavinia, 
this one's an easy one,

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning the £40 Lavinia voucher prize, all you need to do is ink up your Lavinia stamps and enter, you don't even need to have a blog as email entries are accepted. 

I really love my latest Lavinia stamps, for my rabbit card, the green layer was created using the
oh so gorgeous "Ivy border"
 because my cardstock is textured,the detailing is subtle but take it from me, it's a stunner!
To add my greeting I thought it would be fun to make a sign post, to create this I inked just the stem of "Zen leaf" and hand trimmed my computer generated words, doodling around the edges and placing them using glue and foam dots.

I used the Zen butterfly for this card, inking my stamp with brown for a more subtle look, colouring with a selections of Copics and adding stickles to the wings and glossy accents to the body. the background is randomly stamped again with the script and very faintly with the Stone texture.

 I used Guilding flakes on doublesided tape around the edges of my image.

My final card shows off the Ivy Border more clearly, stamped onto a pink frame created with the ScanNcut.

I added colour and sequins to the butterfly on the 

I also decided to add some inky stitching to define my butterfly.

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
GCC16, Butterflies,
CAGI, Distress it,
TCCB, Number's up,
ITP70, Wings.

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Julie, still trying to decide which of these beautiful cards is my favourite (you know how I hate to choose!!!) is it the gorgeous bunny silhouette with that stunning border? Not sure... it could be the stunning zen butterfly with that lovely script background, love the subtle colours here...and then there's the butterfly die cut...ok I'm not choosing a favourite, they are all amazing!
