A Midsummer night's dream ...

Hello everybody

We are into our third week of June and Associated Events at  Make My Monday,  and this week we have the fabulous theme of A Midsummer Night's Dream - so let's see all those fantastical and mysterious fairies, and let your imagination run wild.

I must admit I was struggling a little bit with this, until I remembered my lovely Lavinia stamps, which I am planning to add to when I go to the ArtStamps Show in Newbury next month.  I am afraid I cheated a little with my background as I had some pre-coloured ones, which I added extra distress inks to to make it a little more moody.  All the images are stamped in black archival ink.  I have added dots in pearly white on the starts and also some sticklers glitter.  Mounted on white card and then navy blue to finish off.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Stampavie and more - Things with Wings
Cheerful Stamp Pad -In the Garden
Creative Mondays - Summer (well the title says it all!)
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
