Lavinia Stamps "Blackberry" Tag

A couple of days ago, Lavinia Stamps released 21 new stamp designs to purchase.  I ordered them all and they arrived today.  After cataloguing them on my spreadsheet, I got down to play.

The "Blackberry" stamp took my fancy for my first make using the new stamps, hence the tag above.

For the background, I cut a piece of white card into a tag.  I then covered it with "Bundled Sage" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then lay the Lavinia Stamps "Foliage" stencil over the tag and used the same ink with a blending brush, which gave a tonal look to the background.

I stamped the blackberry image in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink and then coloured the image using various shades of Distress Oxide Inks applied with a paint brush.
