Lavinia Stamps - Once Upon A Dream through the Willow Arch

Today I have played with my Lavinia Stamps, deciding to use a couple of stamps I've not used very often.

I used a gelli plate background I'd made a while back for the base and stamped the "Willow Arch" and the "Twisted Willow" to create an archway stamped in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I coloured it in with shades of brown Distress Oxide Inks and then stamped "Sacred Spells" script.

I used the Funky Fossil "Brick Wall" stencil with "Forest Moss" Distress Oxide Ink to create the look of a wall around the arch.

I stamped the "Stargazing" couple using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.  I multi stamped the "Twisted Vine Set" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink I stamped the "Fairy Barnacles" to create flowers growing up the wall like a cottage garden. I coloured the flowers with a mix of Oxide Inks and Signo pens, I also added some highlights to the card using a white Signo pen.

Finally, I stamped the "Once upon a dream" sentiment using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.

Lavinia Stamps have started a new Wellbeing group called "Reach out for Lavinia" so I have added this to their new group.
