I was trying to think, where I escape to. Every day, I escape within the pages of a book, but that is not so easy to replicate using Lavinia Stamps. I then got to think about the area I live in. I'm very fortunate to have beaches just a ten minute drive and sometimes there is nothing better than sitting on the headland and watching the sun going down on a summer evening.
For my card, I used a lot of different shades of Distress Oxide Inks to create the landscape. I used: Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve for the sky. I then stamped the pixie image called "Star Gazing" in Versafine "Black Onyx". For the water I used Faded Jeans and Weathered Wood and for the foreground, the setting sun and the section of land jutting out into the sea, I used a selection of green, grey and black Distress Inks. Finally, I used a silver glitter Signo Pen for the detail on the wings and water.
