Lavinia Stamps "Winter Whispers" "Starr and the Wild Pine Card

I'm still playing with my new Lavinia Stamps, this time I used three of the stamps I've not already used.

Starting with a background from my stash, I had fortunately written down on the back of it what I had used.  In this case, it was a selection of Elements Inks on a gel plate.  These are the colours I used:  Confetti, Violet Chalk, Bermuda, Della Blue and Blue Lagoon.

I started the by stamping "Starr" and the "Wild Pine" in Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.

Next, I used a Lavinia "Moon Mask" and edged it with Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.

I used "Monarch" again with a Lavinia "Hill Mask" to create the landscape.

Next, I positioned the new Lavinia Stamp called 'Leaf Bouquet" horizontally and stamped it along the left hand bottom of the card using Versafine Clair "Monarch" ink.  I repeated the process on the right hand side, but this time with the stamp in a vertical position.

I inked the edges of the card using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, then mounted the card on to a dark blue mount.

I then started to add the finishing touches.  I used an assortment of gel pens, Posca Pens and Pastel Pencils to add colour to the scene.  Then mounted the card on to a white card blank.


  1. Stunning use of the new Wild Pine and Starr - love the background and all your decorative touches.

  2. A beautiful card Sam with lots of interest starting with that wonderful background, and I love your finishing touches to really make it magical. I'm not really one for fairy images, but that tree is fabulous and definitely on my wish list. x
