Meadow Mushroom Hare

I have a new card to share today using gorgeous Lavinia Stamps and some stencilling.

The wonderful Meadow Mushroom stamp is the newest addition to my Lavinia collection and I couldn't wait to use it :)  It's gorgeous!

To create the background I used a piece of card that I had started previously which had the sun rays already on it. It was a second "print"  from another piece I'd been working on.
I had used distress inks to sponge on a colourful sky and then placed a sun rays stencil on top and sprayed it with water.  It created a gorgeous effect but I also noticed there was a lot of wet ink left on the stencil after doing this so I pressed it down on another piece of card and so ended up with two lovely backgrounds for the price of one :) Yay!

The rays were created using mustard seed, marmalade, raspberry and dusty concord Distress Inks.

I sponged some tumbled glass and broken china Distress Inks on top of the rays and splashed the card with some water and watered down Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I also decided to add some stars.  I used Ranger Texture Paste for some and Versamark for others.
I then used a blue mica powder on top of them so they are actually shimmery.
I also added some "Disney stars"  to the sky with a white gel pen.

I stamped Whimsical Hares, Fairy Buttercups and Meadow Mushroom stamps by Lavinia Stamps using dusty concord, peeled paint and black Archival Inks.

I also used some Echo Park paper for the sentiment and strip behind the main panel.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :
