613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes



Our challenge this month at 613 Avenue Create is Anything Goes but with the added twist of School Days for those who fancy the twist.  I chose to stick with the Anything Goes theme as I have nothing in my stash for back to school. It's a long time now since my two were in school and it's so long ago I don't even know when schools are in or out.  In the UK our kids don't go back until September anyway.

For my card I started with a background I had created which was sitting in my stash.  I used a stencil for the leaves and some distress inks and water to give a mottled effect.

The fairy stamp is from Lavinia Stamps and she is called Seren, which means star in Welsh.  I used VersaFine Clair ink in Acorn for all the stamping to give the monochrome effect - adding a touch of bright yellow marker pen for the lantern.  The Believe washi tape is from Aall&Create.

I love this with those wonderful dusty autumnal colours. Like you my son and even my granddaughter have long since left school but as there is one at the bottom of my road I know when the term is in full swing hahaha. Still don't think you'll see any School Daze from me over at 613. In the mean time thank you for sharing this with us at Inspiration station and good luck xx
