Putting winner stamps from Lavinia to good use =)

During this past weekend I was attending a scrap event (Stockholm Hobby and Craft event) and had the luck to win a couple of stamps from Lavinia Stamps. Tonight I got to play with them. I borrowed the design from my table neighbour at the event and she was also the one who got me hooked on the "chunky white embossing powder". What effects you can get with that! Will be coming very handy as snow for Christmas cards. You do however have to look out since you heat your project from below (otherwise you'll blow the powder off) but I wasn't looking hard enough so all of a sudden I saw smoke coming from my project. It was ok though... need to look out more next time *big smile*

So here are my two projects, same design, different colors. I used Bristol Smooth cardstock for blending the background. My first time testing it. I must say that the blending is quite smooth but it is definately easier on the cardstock I normally use. Here the colors just keep gliding around. Hard to get the intensity I was looking for. Anyway, more practise needed.
I used Picked raspberry, Dusty Concord, Black soot and Scattered straw distress inks for the left one and Salty ocean, Blueprint sketch, Chipped Saphire, Black soot and Scattered straw for the right one.

My favorite. The square stiched die is from Gummiapan.

Was a bit too generous with the embossing powder here but...wiser until the next time.

Thanks so much Lavinia Stamps for the generous donations you made to Stockholm Hobby and Craft event. I have enjoyed them thoroughly!
