Lavinia Stamps New Release October 2019 - Zanor

This is my third make using the fabulous new stamps Lavinia Stamps (release date 4th October) Zanor the pegasus and Meadow Mushrooms.

I used a gelli plate background that I'd prepared a couple of months back, it was a blend of two Colorbox inks (which resulted in a soft blue and green, ideal for a landscape) brayered onto the gelli plate then had wet Brusho sprinkled on top, the print impression was then taken.

I started this card a little differently from the way I normally work.  I created the landscape first, using the torn edge of a piece of paper and "Black Soot" Distress Oxide Ink.

I then stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Tree Root", I had to extend the length of the tree trunk by masking areas,repositioning and stamping the image again.  I used Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink to stamp the image and painted it using Distress Oxide Inks in the shades of Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso.

Using Versafine Clair "Acorn" shade of brown ink, I stamped the new "Zanor" the pegasus, the "Tree Branch", the little fairy at the base of the tree from the "Fairy Foragers" set, the brand new "Meadow Mushrooms" and the "Mini Slender Mushrooms".  Using the same ink, I stamped the sentiment "Let your spirit take flight".

Finally, I added some small flowers to the foreground and some high light areas to the card using a white Signo pen.
