Lavinia Stamps, SplodgeAway Mask and a Marianne Creatables Flower.

Hi ho Bloggers, the idea for this card was inspired by a 
Scrapbook Layout that I saw on my friend Joan's blog .
A fabulous Christmas Layout  with a Tartan background.
I tried to 'do' freehand Tartan on my card... disaster! 
So this is my take on the Tartan 'look' (sort of!) using a SplodgeAway Mask some gorgeous Lavinia Stamp
and a Marianne Creatables Poinsettia Die.
I'm entering this card into The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge
 Many thanks Joan for the inspiration.
Dylusions Ink Sprays, Distress Inks and Versafine inks
 along with white acrylic paint, plus some Tartan Ribbon!
I 'fixed' small beads around the edges of the flower petals.
Don't go there ... it took flippin ages!
Back tomorrow with another Lavinia Stamp Card.
Some pretty Fairies and a PanPastels 'Heart'!
Thanks for popping by today and for all the smashing comments.
You are all STARS!
