Lavinia Stamps February 2019 Monthly Challenge #1
Every month, Lavinia Stamps has a monthly challenge. As part of the the Design Team, we are asked to produce some samples to promote the challenge and inspire crafters to take part. This is my make for the February Challenge on a theme of "A Place To Escape To".
I had an idea in my head of the sort of piece I wanted to make for this challenge, so I routed through my Lavinia stash, pulling out the stamps I thought I could use and then started putting it together.
I started by making the background, using the following Distress Oxides: Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron.
I then started stamping the images. Starting with "Sacred Spells" in Versafine "Stormy Grey" shade of ink. I then stamped the red "Spotty Toadstool", "Jasmin & Sebastian House", "Fairy Orbs", "Small Pixies", Hedgehog from the "Wallace Family" and finally the butterfly from "Fairy Bugs" all stamped in Versafine "Black Onyx" ink. I then coloured the images with Promarkers.
Using an assortment of Lavinia "Pound Stamps", I stamped the red and green leaves, the orange flowers on the grass and also the stars around the Pixies in Memento Inks.
