Lavinia Stamps Design Team Sample for Hochanda TV August 2019 - Zemira and the Dragon Beasts

Lavinia Stamps will be featuring some of their brand new stamp designs on Hochanda TV on 22nd August 2019.  This was a Design Team sample I made using some of the new stamps, but I decided to submit another piece instead.

I created the background using Distress Oxide Inks, initially swooshing the ink across the surface then filling in areas with colour using a paintbrush.

For the sky area I used Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Pumice Stone Distress Oxides.

Fro the lower land area I used Antique Linen , Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides.

I masked a circle and coloured it with a little more Spun Sugar and then edged it with Pumice Stone Distress Oxides to make the shape stand out a little more.

All the stamping was done using one shade of Versafine Clair Ink, in the shade of "Medieval Blue".

I first stamped the female figure called "Zemira".  Then the flying dragon which is part of a two stamp set called "Dragon Set".  I then stamped the script which is called "Dragon Verse".

Using a torn piece of card, I created the look of a landscape using the Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink.

I inked the edges in the Versafine Clair Medieval Blue ink but felt the areas needed something more.  So I decided to use "Tree Branch" and the "Mini Leaf 1" from the Lavinia pound stamp section.

I used a white Posca Pen to add highlights to all stamped areas of the card.  I also used it to create the impression of flowers in the grass too.
