Lavinia Stamps "Indra" on a Brusho Gel Plate background

This morning I used one of my lesser used Lavinia Stamps to create this card. 

In my stash, I found a background I had made many months ago, using a circular Gel Plate and Brusho paints, so I decided that this would be my base.  

I used the Lavinia "Indra" large moth stamp, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink and then coated in Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

Around the edge of the circle and moth, I used "Shaded Lilac" Distress Oxide Ink through the Lavinia "Feather Leaf Stencil".  I decided this was too pale, so I then used both the large and the small "Maple Leaf" stamps, in two shades of Archival Inks "Fern Green" and "Prickly Pear".

I used a white Gelly Roll Pen to add highlights to areas of the leaves and the moth.  I added two shades of Liquid Pearls "White Opal" and "Lavender Lace" to areas of the card too.


  1. A beautiful focal image and background

  2. Such a wonderful moth image and it fits beautifully over the gelli plate brusho piece and the maple leaves framing it are just great Sam...they are definitely on my wish list as they make a super frame. x

    1. Thanks Pat. The Maple Leaves, both this one and the mini version, appear in my cards a lot. One of my favourites x
