52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Lavinia Stamps "Fern Heads - Diolch" card

Today, Tuesday 16th May, Eileen Godwin set a challenge to make a "Thank you" card.  I've opted for the word "Diolch" which is the Welsh word for "Thanks". 

I started by using shades of Archival Inks through the Lavinia Stamps "Words 1 Stencil" to create the floral background I used Leaf Green, Pink Peony, Violet and Cornflower Blue inks.  I used the latter to blend the edges of the card.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the Lavinia "Fearn Heads" and the words "Diolch" which is part of the Lavinia "Welsh Words" stamp set.

Using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the Lavinia "Texture 1" at the base of the card.  Finally adding some white dots of Ranger "Enamel Accents".


  1. Beautiful colours and layout Sam

  2. Somehow there are a few of your posts which have passed me by, and this is one and I love the mix of the stencilled flowers and stamped ferns and such pretty colours, and the white enamel accents finish it perfectly. x
