Dusk to Dawn - Final Week

September is an extra long month with five Sundays and that makes this week the final week of our "Dusk to Dawn" challenge.  

Please click here if you wish to jump directly to the post with Mr. Linky.

I've got two wonderful email entries from our friends Margaret and Dawn from Yorkshire.

For Margaret's entry, she has used all Lavinia stamps, including a number of the small £1 stamps (the dragon, the castle, the mushrooms, the stars ….).  She brayered the background with Adirondack inks, using torn paper to make the mountains; then stamped the images in Versafine. She darkened the edges using Cut’n’Dry and, finally, added some sparkle around the stars with Glamour Dust (sorry, this doesn't show up too well on the photo) – the techniques are very well demonstrated by Tracey Dutton (the Lavinia designer) in videos on her site -

Dawn used a freebie stamp of silhouette hares/rabbits and added some Lavinia foliage around the edge.  Her background paper is actually just a sheet of crumpled copy paper which she used to mop up the spare ink from the splodge mat, then ironed flat!

Dora, from my amazing design team has made an extra card for this month......

This is your last chance to participate in the "Dusk to Dawn" challenge.  You may enter up to 3 times and as many challenges as you wish. If you do not have a blog or account on Split Coast Stampers, then just email me a picture of the piece and I will add it to one of our posts.  

If you are not sure what constitutes a scenic project, check out the information here.

Don't forget to add GDT to your link if you wish to be considered for a guest spot.

Have fun creating!
