Lavinia Stamps - March 2019 New Releases "Rory & Darcy" #laviniastamps
Yesterday, Hubby and I went to visit family, so I didn't have an opportunity to play with the new stamps. Before I went to bed, I pulled out a background I had prepared a couple of weeks ago and an assortment of stamps. I knew I was too tired to start, but at least come the morning I knew what I would be playing with.
Roll on two hours later and I was wide awake. I couldn't stop thinking about the stamps and the background, so I gave up, got up and made the card.
I received several comments about the background of the previous card I made, so before I did too much stamping, I remembered to take a photo of an almost bare background. To create this background, I used Distress Oxides in the following shades: Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron. I then stamped the Lavinia script stamp called "Sacred Spells" in Versafine "Stormy Grey" ink.
I started by stamping the "Star Burst" in both full ink and shadow style. I then stamped the "Star Blossom".
Next, I moved to "Rory & Darcy" . I used the small pair not the individual larger ones and the "Spotty Toadstools". I then created the ground scape that the toadstools and the couple stand on using a Distress Ink in the shade of "Stormy Sky: the "Slender Mini Mushrooms" at the base of the card.
I masked of a circle for the moon and used Memento Luxe "Wedding Dress" ink to lighten the area. I then darkened the edge by using a Versafine Ink. I stamped the sentiment "Believe In Magic". I added a canopy of leaves to the top of the card using "Mini Leaf 1"
Finally, I got busy with Signo Pens in white and coloured glitter, I also used Sakura Jelly Roll Pens. I used "White Opal" liquid pearls for the dots on the toadstool.
