Lavinia Stamps, a Sweet Poppy Stencil and PanPastels

Hello bloggers,
Thank you for the kind comments and good wishes you left on my blog yesterday. I'm feeling much better tonight and the energy levels have returned! 
I made this Tag today. Yellow PanPastels and the lovely Dandelions
from Lavinia stamps.
After the main image was dry I placed a Sweet Poppy Stencil over the top and stencilled the Agapanthus  image, using White Glossy embossing paste. I love this effect. 


Don't forget the Lavinia Stamps Challenge Blog . If you enter a card or other project into the challenge, you could win a super duper prize of a Voucher worth a whopping £40 to spend on Lavinia stamps.
Thanks for looking at my blog today.
Back soon.
Eileen xx

  17. HI Eileen, this is a wonderful combination of stamps and Stencils and just adore the colours you have used. Sorry I have not been able to comment for a while but I do check you blog often. As usual your work is amazing.
    Watched the Monaco F1 today, but only saw the start and the end as I fell asleep in the middle. Not sure if that was the program or the fact that I had been up at 5.30 and done a 4 hour walk in the morning. lol.

  18. I use to call these wishing buds, as when you blow on them you make a wish and once you have blown off all the seeds your wish will come true ( gotta love a kids mind) :) These are something I make a lot in my art as they meant a lot to me as a child. I am glad to see others appreciate them as much as I always have! Wonderful tag :)
