Lavinia Stamps Fairy Thistles Sunset Card
I seem to be on a crafting roll at the moment, using these delicious Lavinia Stamps for their Creativity Monthly Challenge.
This will be my third entry into the challenge for this month and I wanted to create something with a clean and simple feel to it.
I started by masking off the card base, leaving a circle exposed. I then blended three pink and one purple shade of Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the coloured middle. I then spritzed my hands and allowed droplets of water to fall on the inked area, I then dried it with a kitchen towel and removed the mask.
I then stamped the central "Fairy Thistles" image. Using the edge of the Lavinia "Seahorse" stamp, I added detail to the edge of the circle.
Finally, I added some small black and gold metallic dots with a pen to add a little bit of interest to the bottom section of the card and a white Signo pen to areas of the thistle.
