This evening I've made a "Summer Meadow" card using Lavinia Stamps.
I started by using two shades of Archival Inks (Prickly Pear and Vivid Chartreuse) through the Lavinia Stamps "Elegance Stencil" in the bottom right hand corner of the card.
Then using first and second generation stamping I stamped the "Leafy Spray" and :Meadow Grass" in Versafine Clair "Verdant" and "Shady Lane" green inks
I then stamped the "Tall Dandelions" and one of the "Open Dandelions" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink and "Morning Mist" grey inks.
Next, using Versafine Clair "Green Oasis" I stamped some foliage from the "Foliage Set".
I used a selection of Posca Pens and Gel Pens to add colour to the dandelions and the foliage.
I decided I wanted to make the line between stamping and the card softer, so using a blending brush and Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" I added a touch of soft green colour to the bottom right hand corner of the card. Finally stamping the "Just For You" sentiment, which is part of the Lavinia "Heartfelt Verse" stamp set.
Beautiful colours and layout,ReplyDelete

What an absolutely gorgeous card Sam. I love the mix of colours and it just shouts springtime to me with the pretty foliage and dandelion clocks, and the added Posca and Gel pen highlights look great! xReplyDelete
