Lavinia Stamps "Erwin the owl" card

This afternoon, my order of the new release of stamps by Lavinia Stamps arrived.  I'm always quite strict with myself when I receive new Lavinia products by listing them on my spreadsheet and re-packing them in plastic wallets as the film pocket that the stamps arrive in tear easily. While detailing and repacking the stamps, it provides me with an opportunity to look at them and throw some ideas around my head of how I can use them. 

I decided "Erwin" the largest owl would be used first, which I paired with the new "Vine Branch".

I stamped "Erwin" in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I then multi stamped the new "Vine Branch" in Versafine Clair 'Shady Lane" green ink.

I then used two shades of Ranger Archival Ink:  Prickly Pear and Leaf Green through the Lavinia "Waffle" stencil.

I used a selection of products for colouring the image, starting with Derwent Inktense pencils, gel pens and Posca Pens.

I then decided that the branches needed something else, so used the shorter dangly branch from the "Foliage Set" with Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" in first and second generation stamping.  I then added yellow and orange Posca Pens to add some flowers to the end of them.
