Lavinia Outing.

Hi to everyone and a very happy Monday to all.  I have no design cards due this week and so will have lots of time to play and to get my cards made for next week.

I was so fortunate to win the January Challenge on the Simply B Stamps Fan Group, thank you so much. It was such fun and I would encourage you to join in. 

 The February Challenge has started. A free image is available on request for you to play with.  I have the female image and she is fabulous.  Watch this space as she will be appearing soon.

My prize was a steampunk stamp of my choice and this was Lavinia Outing and here she is .

I hope you will agree she is a beauty.  I love these steampunk stamps.  You can just let your imagination flow into your design.

List of materials used to make this card:

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured with my Promarker Pens.  I have coloured her hair black and this is, I think, my first attempt at black hair, lots of fun and white pencil used and lots of shade of grey.
Spellbinder die for mount, background shaded with vintage ink. 
Designer paper is fabulous, foiled and from Kaisercraft.
I also used Graphic 45 papers for butterflies and floral circles.
Lots of embellishments have been used.  Prima flowers and clock face.  Charm hung onto lace which has been distressed with inks.  Cameo and pearl swirl, friendship sentiment and liquid pearls.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - pearls and swirls. - girly

My grateful thanks for your continued support.

Sending hugs to all.
