Lavinia Fleur

Spent up on Saturday on my visit to Port Sunlight for the Happy Stamper's Festival.  Haven't been able to go for a couple of times but was determined to make it this time.  Amongst the many things that popped into my basket were a couple more Lavinia Stamps.  
I can remember seeing this maker on their first visit to Port Sunlight many years ago and have built up a little stash over the years.  The fairies are my favourites and I couldn't resist this one, Fleur, so I sat down this afternoon and made a simple card.  I used two colours of Adirondack ink used for colouring the stamp and the spotty background and stamped the nodding bell flower a few more times and cut out to add to the top.

I drew the stems for the additional bells and added the willow stamp fronds at the bottom then coloured the edges of the two mounts in matching colours. 

Haven't done a challenge for a while but am entering this for the 'Spring colours' challenge on the Lavinia Stamp site.

I love the image and your card is delightful Ann! Lovely to see you at Port Sunlight - I spent far too much time chatting and not enough time buying, so I came home with a bit of money! Hugs, Anne x
