Lavinia Stamps "Lupin the hare" Kraft Card

A few weeks before Christmas, I watched a live demonstration by Lavinia Stamps "Amanda Branston".  I was very taken with the way she created the halo around a hare on her card, so decided to give it a go this morning, making this card. 

On a kraft card base, I stamped Lavinia Stamps "Lupin" the hare, using Versafine Clair "Pinecone" dark brown ink.

Using a roll of sticky tape and a white water colour pencil, I drew round the inner and the outer circles, shading in the circle towards the hare and making the outer circle a little thicker.

Using Derwent Inktense Water Colour Pencils, I coloured the hare (I didn't apply water, just used the pencils), building up the colour, using a white, a pink for the ears and t wo shades of brown for the coat of the hare.  I used a dark grey colour to ground the hare.

Finally, I added the Lavinia sentiment, stamped in Versafine Clair "Pinecone" ink and mounted the kraft card on to a white card blank.


  1. You showcased the hare beautifully with the halo surrounding it Sam

  2. What a clever idea to use these circles in white on the kraft card as a background to the sweet hare Sam, and really lovely words too. x
