Lavinia Stamps New Release October 2019 - Zanor Pegasus
This is my second make using the brand new October 2019 Lavinia Stamps release. In this card I have used "Zanor" the pegasus and "Meadow Mushrooms" (both sizes).
This is quite a small card, the actual image is only a little over 3" x 4". All stamping on this card has been made using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
I used an off cut of a gelli plate print of soft blues and pink colours. Created using Colorbox Ink brayered onto the gelli plate with wet Brusho sprinkled on the top (sorry I don't recall what shades I used as this is part of an old print).
I stamped "Zanor" the pegasus first, then created the landscaped background. I coloured the lower section with Distress Oxide ink "Worn Lipstick" and "Picked Raspberry". Using the torn edge of a piece of copy paper and Distress Oxide Ink in the "Weathered Wood" Shade, I created the hill scape.
I masked off a circle shape around the head of "Zanor" and added a pink edge using Distress Oxide Ink "Worn Lipstick" to create the impression of a sky.
I then returned to stamping, the new "Meadow Mushrooms" and the "Mini Slender Mushrooms". I stamped two words "Take Flight" from the Lavinia Stamps sentiment called "Let Your Spirit Take Flight".
Finally, I added some grass tufts below the mushrooms using a black fine line pen and white highlights to areas of the card using a Signo Pen.
