Lavinia Stamps "Tree Goddess Luna" Dream Card
I love this "Tree Goddess Luna" stamp by Lavinia Stamps, so decided to use her again, even though it's only a couple of days since I last stamped her. This card is actually very sparkly, but unfortunately the camera just doesn't pick it up.
I used one of the backgrounds I made the other day, when I was experimenting using a stencil to print with. The image above is the background before I started stamping. I produced the pattern by using a Funky Fossil Stencil called "Petal Burst". For this background I experimented with Distress Inks, which I found didn't work as well as the Oxides did for the same process.
Back to the image. I started by stamping the Lavinia Stamps "Sacred Spells" script stamp in Versafine "Stormy Gray" ink.
Using the "Dream" stamp from the Lavinia Stamps "Inspire Me" set of word stamps, I stamped the word in Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink. Using the same ink, I stamped the "Tree Goddess Luna" image.
I needed to draw the eye in to the image, so went around the edge with a blending tool and a Distress Oxide Ink called "Broken China".
Finally, I added some sparkle by using a silver glitter Signo Pen and a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add some shimmer to the wings of Luna. I added a sprinkling of Nuvo "Diamond" sequins to the background too.
