Lavinia Stamps - Sebastian the seahorse (on a gelli plate background)
Looking through my stamps, I realised it's been ages since I used the Lavinia Stamps "Sebastian the Seahorse". The detail on it is stunning, so I decided to have a play.
I had a prepared 6" gelli plate background from a previous session a couple of weeks back, so decided to use it. (It was Colorbox "Artichoke" colour ink brayered onto the plate, with splashes of turquoise coloured wet Brusho sprinkled on top of the brayered colour).
I added some extra colour to the top of the circle as it was too light for what I wanted using a couple of Distress Oxide Inks.
I stamped "Sebastian" in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink.
I stamped the background taller "Seaweed 2" in Versafine Clair "Verdant" light green ink.
I stamped the "Stones" in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink and coloured them with a metallic gold pen.
I stamped the darker coloured "Seaweed" stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.
I stamped the "Sea Bubbles" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. I added some touches of silver glitter using a Signo Pen.
