Lavinia Stamps - Grand-daughter Birthday Card
Willow, our eldest Grand-daughter will be celebrating her 6th birthday in a couple of days. I've included lots of her favourite things - dragons, fairies, wolves and horses on this card, which I've created using a whole selection of Lavinia Stamps and Distress Oxide inks applied with a brush.
I started by creating the background sky using the following Distress Oxide inks: Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and Broken China.
I moved on to the grassy areas using Shabby Shutters, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides.
I stamped the "Tree Root" in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink. I then stamped the "Skeleton Tree" in Versafine "Smokey Gray" ink. Using the torn edge of a piece of copy paper, I created the landscape lines using Versafine "Olympia Green" shade of ink.
Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink I stamped the "Twilight" fairy, "Maka" the wolf and the hedghog, which is part of the "Wallace Family"
I stamped the dragon, which is part of the "Dragon Set" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. I stamped the "Horse & Foal" in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.
I painted the tree trunk with a selection of greens and brown coloured Distress Oxide Inks. I used a white Signo Pen and an orange Posca pen to creat the flowers on the grass. I also used the Signo Pen to add highlights to some of the figures.
I stamped the "Field Grass" at the base of the card using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink. Finally, I stamped the sentiment using a magnetic Rubbadubbaoo stamp set.
