Lavinia Stamps February 2020 Hochanda TV Sample Preview - Set 3
Lavinia Stamps will be on Hochanda TV on Friday 7th February at mid-day and 3pm. Amanda Branston will be demonstrating some fabulous stamps, accessories and tecniques.
I tried something a bit different with the background of this card, using a mini gelli plate with Artichoke and Grape Colorbox Inks brayered onto the plate with a sprinkle of wet turquoise coloured Brusho, repeating the pressing of the circles to create something similar to a bokeh look.
I decided that the background would distract from the stamping so, covered some of it with Distress Oxide Inks - Tumbled Glass and Broken China at the top and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn on the bottom.
Using the torn edge of a piece of copy paper, I dragged Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink to create a landscape. I masked off a circle for the moon and edged the moon with the same ink.
Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the large "Fairy Chain" across the middle of the card. I then cut the card down to the size I wanted to work with.
I continued to stamp in the black ink, stamping the "Forest So Green" sentiment and the "Creeping Vine".
At this stage, I decided I wanted a less solid background, so sprinkled some water droplets from a fan brush, which provided the lighter areas I was wanting.
I added some shimmer to the fairy wings, using a silver glitter Signo Pen. I then added some fairy sparkle using the "Holographic Moon Dust" in the sky and around the creeping ivy.
