Lavinia Stamps "Mae" monochrome tag



I'm back after a week away at the caravan, but was so ready to do a bit of stamping, so while the first load of washing was in the machine, I made a monochrome tag. 

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps fairy "Mae" and one of their "Bubbles" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I masked off the moon area then covered the tag with a light brushing of "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then used the same ink through the Lavinia "Replenish" stencil.

I used Van Goch pastel pencils, a white Signo Pen and black Enamel Accents to add extra details.

Lavinia Stamps "Olivia" Card



It's the first time for me to use one of the recently released stamps from Lavinia Stamps.  This one, which is the main feature of this card is called "Olivia" I've used the small version here. 

For the background, I have used an off-cut of a Scenescape, which I have enhanced with extra colours. I've used the following Lavinia Stamps: Tree of Hope, Small Branch, Foliage Set and Small Pixie Houses.  I have stamped in two shades of Versafine Clair inks:  Nocturne and Morning Mist.  I have also used Posca Pens and Signo Uniball pens.

Lavinia Stamps "Wild Flower Vine" Anniversary Card



I made this quick card using three shades of Archival Inks (Buttercup, Tiger Lily and Prickly Pear) in the background.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Wild Flower Vine" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  I used the same ink to stamp the MFT stamps anniverary sentiment, part of their "Essential Sentiments" set.  Finally, adding some colour with a pastel pencil and a Signo Pen.

Finally, adding some white splatters using a Posca Pen.

Lavinia Stamps "Penblwydd Hapus" star card



This is a quick card I've made, with minimal stamping using Lavinia Stamps. 

I have used the stars from the Lavinia Stamps "Words 2" stencil with four shades of Archival Inks (Bright Tangelo, Forget Me Not, Pink Peony and Prickly Pear to create the background.  Around some of the stars I have used a Sakura shimmer pen to add a little extra detail.

I've used the Lavinia Stamps "Penblwydd Hapus"  (Happy Birthday) stamp from their "Welsh Words" set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.
