Design Team Make for "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" (388) - Winter Birthday (Lavinia Stamps)

This is a Design Team card I have made for the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" on the theme of "Winter Birthday".  Please do pop over and take a look at the fab creations from my fellow DT colleagues.

For my card, I started by using water colour pencils with a paint brush to paint the sky and the land.  

Using a Lavinia Stamp called "Trees", I repeat stamped the image across the card using Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink.  I added the Lavinia Stamp "Birds" stamped in Versafine "Stormy Grey".

I continued to build up the image with adding more depth with the water colour.  I then cut the image down to 4x4" and mounted it onto brown card.  At this stage I added some icy/frosty sparkle using a silver glitter Signo Pen.

I cut a piece of plain paper to 4x4 size, positioned it in the middle of a plain card and marked where the line of trees was, then stamped the same tree image across card from side to side.  I lifted the paper mask and then positioned and stuck the water colour image down.

The Papertrey Ink sentiment, from their "Winter Hills" set was stamped in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink to finish the card.
