Lavinia Stamps "Pheasant" Birthday Card

Today I've made a birthday card, using Lavinia Stamps.  I usually struggle making male cards, but I'm pleasantly pleased how this card turned out.

I used a background I had in my stash, that I made some time ago, using the gel plate, Pan Pastels and the Lavinia "Pebbles" stencil.

I stamped in various shades of Versafine Clair Inks using the following Lavinia Stamps:

  • Pheasant
  • Tree of courage
  • Forest Spruce 
  • Foliage Set
  • Small Branch 
  • Silhouette Grass
I used a Simon Says Stamp for the sentiments, part of their Tiny Words  - Birthday set.

Finally, I used Posca Pens and a white gel pen to add highlights and detail.


  1. The detail in your sky and foreground is amazing Sam a beautiful masculine card

  2. The background is perfect for your wonderful pheasant Sam, and I love the colours and the different foliage you have used together with the white gel pen highlights which finish it beautifully. x
