St. David's Day Artist Trading Coin (Lavinia Stamps)
The 1st of March is Saint David's Day (the Patron Saint for Wales). So I made an Artist Trading Coin to commemorate the day.
I've used Distress Oxide Inks for the background (Tumbled Glass for the sky and Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover for the grass.
Using Versafine "Smokey Grey" shade of ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Skeleton Tree Scene". I then stamped the "Small Dragon" in Versafin Clair "Tulip Red" ink.
I then created the landscape at the base of the coin, using a mask and Distress Ink in the shade of "Peeled Paint". Finally I added letters for the word "Cymru" which is the Welsh work for Wales and I inked the edges of the coin.
