Garden Spirit by Lavinia!

Good morning Lovelies! I hope your having a great weekend? Well where's the heat wave we were meant to have this weekend?

Today's post is for Lavinia Stamps challenge the theme is Lavender!

And here she is the beautiful Garden Spirit by Lavinia stamps

I started by stamping the vines also Lavinia! With Perfect Medium then swiped with 3 shades of Violet Pan Pastels, staring with the darkest and gently laying down to start with so not to smudge the sticky ink, then blending the shades! I used the gorgeous linen texture card by Papermill direct, I then stamped the lovely Garden Spirit using Versafine onyx black ink, once dry I used a pencil eraser to rub out the colour in the flowers and her face, once I was happy I sprayed with cheap hairspray to seal it, I coloured her eyes lips and cheeks with pencils, added some glitter here and there and finished off with some highlights using a white pen, I got a little blip with some ink on her hair so I stamped a tiny flower and coloured with the pans and glittered it and decoupaged it over the blip lol! Simples! Now you can't see it hahaha! I hope you like it?
Thank you for visiting have a nice day xxx
