Fantasy at Try It On Tuesday

 Our new challenge starts today at Try It On Tuesday and the challenge prompt this time is 'FANTASY'.
The challenge runs for 2 weeks and am really looking forward to seeing all things mystical and magical over on the challenge blog.

I am a Lavinia fan so obviously I turned to the Lavinia stamp drawer (which still has some space in it - just in case Father Christmas is reading this🎅)

My8" x 6" art piece has been placed in a piece of mountboard ready to be framed.

The Oracle is weary.
But her long journey across the magic lands are nearly over.
She has arrived at the edge of the enchanted forest and can see her home in the far away Dreamweaver Castle.
There is just the water to cross to come to her journey's end and
she will resume her seat on the three legged stool and communicate the prophecies visited upon her.
Her time to rest is almost here.

All stamps are Lavinia apart from the tree line across the water which is Inkylicious and the rocks which are Card-io.

I used a variety of coloured inks for the stamping and blending. Versafine Clair, Elements and Versacolour.

I hope I have inspired you to make something magical to share with us this challenge! x
Sharing too over at

I hope the Oracle makes it home soon. But since she is weary perhaps she needs to rest a bit. This card is very lovely Viv. I haven't done much with Lavinia stamps because I think I only own 2 or 3 of them, but I love how so many people make great scenes with them. Happy week. hugs-Erika

A fabulous magical scene Viv and I love the story to go with it. Lavinia are a bit addictive, I'm quite new to them, just over a year or so and the wish list is getting rather long, hope Santa takes your hint.
