The Dusk Garden #laviniastamps
I had a late night play session and created this piece. The lovely background colours are a mix of several shades of Distress Oxides: Festive Berries, Candied Apple, Aged Mahogany, Ripe Persimon, Fosilized Amber and Abandoned Coral.
I have used Lavinia Stamps throughout this card. I started by stamping "Wild Vines" in Versafine "Stormy Grey" ink along the bottom of the card.
Using Versafine "Black Onyx" ink for the rest of the card I stamped the "Nigela Damascena" thistles and the "Fairy Buds" (the tall flowers) then more "Wild Vines" and finally the sentiment/verse called "Embrace Your Dreams".
Finally I added touches of gold using a Signo Pen and touches of gold sparkle using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and inked the edges in black ink.
