Still playing with the new Lavinia Stamps, this time using a gel plate background.
I started off with a gel plate background, where I had used Distress Inks, spritzed with water then took the press. By memory, I think I used Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles shades of Distress Ink.
I ran an anti-static pad over the inked surface, then using a Wow! ink pad I stamped the new Lavinia Stamps large and small "Snowflakes" and then coated the inked images with Wow! Bright White super fine embossing powders and heat set.
I cut a circle aperture in to a piece of white card and the exposed circle shape over the inked and embossed background, sticking in position with sticky tape. I then mounted it on to a piece of dark red card and then on to a white card blank.
I stamped the sentiment using one of the new Lavinia Stamps "Christmas Greetings" stamp. I first stamped it in Versafine Clair "Chianti" but I wasn't happy with the colour match, so added some Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink over the top.
Finally, I added some dots of white gel pen between the snowflakes and added some silver sticky backed gems to the middle of each snowflake for extra dimension.
