Bright And Beautiful With Lavinia

I've had the brayer out again today and also my Gelli plate for the current challenge over on the Lavinia Challenge blog, which is Bright And Beautiful. I put a base colour onto the Gelli plate using a Stampin Up stamp pad Tangelo Dream, and then using a template for hills and using the same colour continued with a blending tool to complete the background. Then I added the fairy, flowers, fern and mushrooms, finally adding the sentiment and the butterflies. I added a little glitter to the wings and used stickles for the butterfly trails. When I had finished I went around the outside with a blending tool and more of the same coloured ink, then mounted it onto a brown 6x6 card base.



Thanks for taking to the time to look and for your kind comments which are always appreciated.
