Lavinia Stamps - Design Team Samples for August 2019 Hochanda TV Show - Oona

On what is possibly one of the hottest days of the year and I have been making a Christmas card - how wrong is that!

The reason for creating Christmas cards so early in the year is that Lavinia Stamps will be launching some of their new collection of stamps on Hochanda TV on 22nd August 2019.

For this sample, I have used a Brusho background I created some time ago.  I my haste to finish the card I forgot to write down what Brusho Paints I had actually used, but from looking at the colour flecks, I feel there is definitely some Gamboge in there.

I used the Lavinia Stamp "Willow Arch", stamped three times to make a wreath shape.  I stamped the three sections using Versafine Clair "Chianti" shade of ink.  I then used two shades of Arteza Brush Pens to colour the wreath (Current Red and Wine Red).  Using the same Versafine ink, I stamped the fairy called "Oona" and the berries around the edge of the wreath, the "Mini Berries" are in the Lavinia pound stamp section.

I used a gold Sakura Gelly Roll Pen and a white Posca Pen to add highlighted areas to the card.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment, cut it to size and stuck into postion on the card.
