Lavinia Stamps "Wild Pine" Forest Scene Card

I'm back to playing with my Lavinia Stamps, mixing a couple of the new with several of the existing stamp collection.

I started with a 7x7 card and used a selection of Element Inks to create the background.  By the time I was happy with the inked background, I decided it was too large for what I wanted, so cut it down to  five and a half inch square.

I started by multi stamping the trees on the left hand side of the card, using the "Tree Den" and the "Tree Stem" with Versafine Clair "Pine Cone" dark brown ink.

I then stamped the "Wild Pine" tree in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink, I stamped the new "Leaf Bouquet" on the bottom right hand side of the card.

Next I stamped the Lavinia "Wild Hares" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I used the Lavinia "Hill Mask" with Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink to create the landscape.

Next, I stamped the "Small Pixie Houses" using Versafine Clair "Morning MIst" grey ink.

I stamped the Lavinia "Small Branch" in Versafine Clair "Pine Cone" to replicate branches from the tree trunks.

Next I stamped the Lavinia "Vine" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink using first and second generation stamping.

Finally, I coloured in areas using Derwent Inktense pencils, gel pens and Posca pens.


  1. An enchanted forest scene Sam,the background colours are beautiful

  2. Wow! This has it all, and in spades Sam, I love the cute hares and pixie houses, and that wonderful new tree, and the trees in a row down the left side, the pretty leaf bouquet on the right and the added silhouette leaves frame the scene perfectly, also there is so much light from the yellow and green, and the added pen details for the sweet flowers and spots of colour on the tree and leaf bouquet as finishing touches look fantastic. x

  3. Wonderful forest scene with so much detail - I particularly love how you have coloured the background.
