Evening all, just a quick post to share my Lavinia Stamps  DT work for April.
The theme this month is Lemon & Lime, and as usual there is a £40 prize for the 'randomly-picked' winner. You MUST use Lavinia Stamps on your entry.
It's such a fab chance to build on your collection of amazing products from

All card stock is from

The backgrounds have all been made with Dylusion Inks
and a selection of 
Lavinia Stamps which can be found on the website.

I covered the trees with a clear glaze.

This coloured panel was left-over from another project,  I loved the colours on it.

I didn't include this little tag in my DT work, as I stamped the sentiment crookedly, but I still like it!

Hope you've enjoyed looking at my Lavinia Stamps samples, I'll be back soon with another Papermilldirect 'special offer'.
Catch you later, have a great Easter weekend.
