Come and visit me in the Fairy Hive!

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! 
It’s time for a new Lavinia World Challenge featuring Lavinia stamps.
          We are a bi-weekly Challenge Blog and the theme will be Anything Goes using stamps
(either rubber or clear, but no digi stamps). 
                               Details are found under the "rules" tab on the Challenge Blog.

For my project, I used:
Lavinia Stamp - Fairy Hive LAV503
Lavinia Stamp - Moon LAV431
Lavina Stamp - Crow Set LAV540
Lavinia Stamp - See a Fairy Make a Wish LAV485

The stamps were all stamped with VersaFine Clair - Fallen Leaves, Morning Mist

I used 2 wood slices to create this project.
First i stamped the images on paper.
Then i used mod podge to attach them to the wood slices. 
I used Tim Holtz Oxides to paint the Fairy Hive and the moon and around the crow.
Then i also used Tim Holtz Oxides to paint the wood (not the edges)
I used Tim Holtz Oxide Crackle Paint on top of the moon, Fairy Hive and crow.
Then i stamped the background with the sentiment.
I used Prima rust affects paint - brown rust for the edges of the wood
Then i added a bit of Art Alchemy Wax - Firebird on top of the brown rust.
I added two twigs under the bird and high lighted them with the wax as well.
I used some water down Acrylic paint - Lime Yellow as a "moon" shadow around the hive and the bird.
Next, i painted the wood with the stamped sentiment with mod podge.
Last thing is i cut out a Memory Box tree die and painted it with black gesso and high lighted it with the wax. 
Now, i just glued the tree branches on and then glued the crow on top of the Fairy hive part.
** Make sure you put a saw tooth hanger on the back before you start.
