Lavinia Stamps Design Team Sample for Hochanda TV on 23rd April 2019 (Set 1 - 3)

Lavinia Stamps will be featured on Hochanda TV on Tuesday 23rd April 2019 at 11am and 3pm.  This is a Design Team sample I have made for the show.

For this sample, I started by painting a rough landscape line , colouring the area below the line, in a very pale colour of green.  I blotted the area dry and popped a circle mask on the card to be used as a sun.  I taped a stencil into position over the card and the prepared landscape, using a low tack tape.  I marked each outer corner with a pencil, so I knew where to reposition it later.

Using Distress Inks and a sponge finger dabber.  I first used "Tumbled Glass" for sky and "Old Paper" for the land.  I then lifted and rotated the stencil and repositioned with tape.  Next I used "Broken China" on the sky and Twisted Citron" for the land area. After lifting the stencil away, I then lifted the mask I had made for the sun and coloured the circle using the "Scattered Straw" Distress Ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps fairy called "Josie".  Using the Distress Ink called "Peeled Paint", I created a landscape for the fairy to stand on.  

I used three Lavinia "Pound Stamps" to add some extra detail.  The "Mini Leaf 1", the "Mini Snail" and the "Mini Slender Mushrooms" also stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne".  Finally, I added touches of white to the mushrooms and snail using a Signo Pen and a hint of gold shimmer using a Sakura Jelly Roll Pen.
