Pastel Pixie Dust

This months challenge over at Lavinia Stamps is Pastel Colours.  So when my lovely new stamps arrived this week I couldn't wait to put them to use.

I decided to make a little wall hanging instead of a card, but also think these make a great card that can then be hung up displayed after your birthday is over.

The background was done with a brayer using Adirondack inks in Cloudy Blue & Pink Sherbet. I also mixed the two colours to make a lovely soft lilac.

I used the following Lavinia Stamps:

Fairy Web
Dancing Fairies
Creeping Vine

They were all stamped with Versafine Black Onyx

Then I added the Miniature flowers in Adirondack Eggplant, Pink Sherbet, Cloudy Blue and a Memento Lavender.

I dotted the Fairy web with Glossy accents and added some ultra fine glitter to look like morning dew.
