Another Lavinia Stamps card from me today, this time using three of the new release stamps.
To start, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Head-dress" upside down, using Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink. I stamped it again on a post-it note and fussy cut the top area, before positioning it over the original stamped image on the white piece of card.
With the mask in position, I stamped "Ginger" the owl, which is the medium sized own of the three new releases by Lavinia Stamps. I stamped using Versafine Clair "Fantasia" ink. I repeat stamped the owl on a post-it note and fussy cut it so that it would be a mask.
Incidentally, with the masks I make, I don't bin them after one project, I keep them in a plastic wallet with the stamp for future use. It saves a few moments of stamping and cutting, which I am all for!
I put some "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink on to my glass mat, diluted it slightly with a spritz of water then applied the colour in a mottled style around the masked area of the head-dress and owl. I then decided to add a touch of "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Ink, applied in the same way. I then gave the surface a blast of the heat gun to dry it fully.
Once dry, I lay the Lavinia Stamps "Waffle" stencil over the top of the piece of card. Using a blending brush, I applied "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil, lightly at first and then with slightly more pressure towards the edges of the card.
I used a finger dabber, with Versafine Clair "Fantasia" ink around the edge of the card to make the central area colour pop more.
I then popped a dab of Dr PH. Martin's Bleed Proof white paint on to my glass mat, added a touch of water then used a fan shaped paint brush to create the splatters across the surface of the card. I then set it aside to dry for a few minutes, while I tidied my desk up.
Once dry, I removed the two paper masks and stamped some extra branches around the nest.head-dress using the Lavinia Stamps "Woodland Set" with Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink.
I stamped the sentiment, which is part of the Lavinia "Heartfelt Verse" stamp set using Versafine Clair "Fantasia" ink. I then mounted the card on to a piece of purple cardstock and then glued it into position on a white card blank.
Now it was time to colour in the main image. I used a selection of Derwent Inktense Pencils applied with a paint brush. These are the shades I used: Fuchsia, Mauve, Violet Blue, Malibu and Mineral Blue. I then added touches of Posca Pens and Gel Pens to add extra depth of colour and a lovely glitter look to areas too. Finally, in the nest area, I added touches of Ranger White Enamel Accents and Liquid Pearls Blackberry.
