Lavinia Stamps April Monthly Challenge - "Buds and Blossoms" #3

It's time to remind you that the April  Lavinia Stamps monthly challenge with a theme of "Buds and Blossoms" ends on the 25th of the month, so you just have time to create up to five entries and maybe win £40 of vouchers to spend on the Lavinia Site.  This is a Design Team sample I made to help promote the challenge.

I created a background using Colorbox Inks on a Gelli Plate and then sprinkled Brusho paint on top.  I then positioned my card on top of the gell plate and applied a little pressure across the surface and this mottled look was the result, which I rather like.

I used Versafine Clair "Twilight" shade of ink to stamp the following images:  Fuchsia, Faith the Fairy, Single Skeleton Tree, and Star Blossom.  Using the same ink, I masked off the moon area and created an edge to define where the moon is.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink, I stamped the Wild Flower.

I coloured the Star Blossom flowers with a gold metallic pen.  I used a white Signo Pen to add high-lights.  I also used a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen to areas to give a subtle gold shimmer.


  1. the mottled background and colours create the impression of light filtering through to the undergrowth, love the stamps and scene you created
