The Green Man Card #1 (Lavinia Stamps)

This week seems to have whizzed by and I've been itching to craft but I've not had an opportunity, due to galavanting about, so today is my craft day!

I have loved the Lavinia Stamps "Green Man" stamp since it was released, but there have always been others that took priority in my shopping basket.  I addressed this over sight this week and treated myself to the small version, which actually isn't so small, approximately 5" x 3.5" in size.

The background of this card is Brusho, applied to a spritzed card, in shades of emerald green and untra-marine.

I stamped The Green Man using a Versamark ink and Wow "Super Fine Metallic Silver" embossing powder and used a heat gun to set it.

I made a mask to cover the image and then used the Lavinia "Sacred Spells" stamp to the top right and bottom left, stamped in Versafine Ink.

I used the Lavinia "Creeping Vine" and "Climbing Ivy" stamped in Versafine Clair "Rain Forest" ink.  

Finally I added white to the eyes, using a Signo Pen and a handful of Nuvo sequins to lift the more plain areas.
