Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Preview - "Tree of Dreams"

Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps has been busy creating some fabulous designs, which in turn have been made into clear stamps.  The tree on this card is called "The Tree Of Dreams".  It is a stunning piece and will compliment the existing Lavinia range perfectly.

The launch of the new collection of stamps will be at the NEC  in Birmingham (stand A19) on Thursday 31st October.

I used a blotchy coloured background using the follwoign Distress Oxide Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Salty ocean.

I used the "Carved Pumpkin" Distress Oxide ink through a Visible Image stencil called "Time Tunnel" to created the curved twirl look.

All the stamping was done in Versafine Clair "Monarch" ink, first the new stamp "Tree of Dreams", next I stamped "Darcy" from the "Small Rory & Darcy Set" (the little girl figure), then the fairy, which is part of the "Three Dancing Fairies" set of stamps.  The sentiment "Every Dream" is also one of the new release stamps.

I created the landscape using "Seedless Preserve" Distress Oxide ink and the torn edge of a piece of copy paper.

I added white highlights to the tree and figures using a Signo Pen.  For the creeper on the tree, I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and for the green dots, I used a shade of Liquid Pearls called "Mermaid"
