Lavinia Stamps August 2019 New Release Stamps "Sneak Peek" (Zemira and Flutterbies)

On the 22nd August, Lavinia Stamps will release a colelction of ten fabulous new stamp designs.  On the same day, my fellow Design Team member, Jo Rice will be promoting a selection of stamps on Hochanda TV at 11am and 3pm, so don't forget to tune in.

Here's a "Sneek Peek" of one of my cards featuring some of the new designs.  I've used a gelli plate background using Colorbox ink brayered onto the plate with wet Brusho sprinkled on using a fan brush.

I've then used a Sweet Poppy stencil - SP1-269 (designed by Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps) to create the background design using a Distress Oxide ink in the shade of "Ripe Persimmon".  I've used a metallic gold pen to add extra detail, a pencil and also a white Posca Pen.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink throughout, I stamped the figure "Zemira" and the butterflies called "Flutterbies".  I added some "Mini Slender Mushrooms", some hanging "Willow" and the word "Sparkle" from the sentiment called "Sparkle"
