Lavinia Stamps "Tree of Dreams"

As I had the Lavinia Stamps "Tree of Dreams" stamp out, I decided to make another card using it. 

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Tree of Dreams" in the middle of the white card.  I then stamped "Pipin" and one of the hares from the "Wild Hare" stamp set.

Using a black fine line pen, I extended the roots of the tree and drew a landscake.

I then used Archival Inks through the Lavinia "Elegance" stencil fading the pattern out towards the edges

I coloured the tree and the landscape using Derwent Inktense pencils.

I then used two shades of Versafine Clair Inks:  Purple Delight and Monarch with a blending brush to blend the edges of the cards fading towards the middle of the card.  I then edged the card in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I used Versafine Clair 'Purple Delight" ink to stamp the "Sacred Spells" verse around the edge of the tree.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" and "Morning Mist" I stamped the "Fairy Hives" hanging from the tree, adding dots of yellow Posca Pen to the windows.

I used an orange glitter and white gel pen to colour the climbers and to highlight the roots.  I then used the orange glitter pen to add dots around the tree, to give the impression of leaves.

Using Gold Stickles, applied with my finger tip, I added sparkle to the tree canopy.  In real life it looks really pretty, sadly the sparkle isn't picked up in this photograph.


  1. This tree looks beautiful here too Sam, totally different to yesterday but with lots of interest using your inks, pens and stickles glitter glue. I love the subtle stencilling and stamped script in the background and the added hives, and also the sweet bird and hares. x
