Lavinia Stamps "Paper Hug" Card

This morning I've made this card for a friend that will be needing a hug this week.   

I stamped the new Lavinia Stamps "Oak Leaves" in Versafine Clair "Summertime" orange ink.  I then stamped the acorns, which are part of the same set in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I used the same ink for the Funky Fossil sentiment, which is part of their "Small Print #2" stamp set.

To colour the leaves and the acorns, I used Derwent Inktense water colour pencils, starting with orange and rust tones then adding greens. I edged and grounded the leaves and acorns using a pencil.

I used "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Ink, applied with a brush in the background.  I used a fine tip pen in brown to cover the orange stems, adding areas of gold shimmer gel pen to the leaves and acorns.
