Lavinia Stamps "Floral Wreath" Bookmark

I've been away in the caravan this past week, so there's been no crafting.  Instead lovely long autumnal walks.  Enjoying, the sometimes bracing weather with fresh air and mud!  We came home yesterday and the washing machine has been very busy since.  

Last night I had the urge to craft, so made myself a book mark using Lavinia Stamps.  I used the new Lavinia "Floral Wreath" stamped in two shades of Versafine Clair ink.  "Morning Mist for the lighter colour and "Medieval Blue" for the darker colour, I also used this shade to ink the edges.  

To colour the garland, I used one of the new Lavinia Element inks called "Blue Lagoon", diluted with water and applied with a brush.  

I used the Lavinia Stamps sentiment called "Once upon a dream" for the words, stamped in Versafine Clair, "Medieval Blue" ink. I coated some of the berries with Ranger "Glossy Accents" and left to dry over night. 

I then used a Stix2 PVC Bookmark sleeve to protect the art work, while in use.
