Every month, Lavinia Stamps have a new challenge. For October 2019 the theme is "All Hallow's Eve". You can enter up to five times. If your name is randomly drawn, then you will receive £40 of vouchers to spend on lovely Lavinia goodies.
This is the second card I have made as part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team to help promote the challenge. Here's a little video I took of the card so that you can see the gold shimmer, which doesn't really show up too much in the flat photograph.
I used two shades of Brusho paint to create the background colour (Purple and Ultra Marine).
I used some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder in a "Rich Gold" shade. I wasn't quite sure how to use it to be honest, initially I thought I could maybe get it to be loose like the Brusho, but it didn't work. What I did manage to do was to brush it across the page which created an interesting streaked shimmer effect to the surface. Not too dis-pleasing after all.
I masked the circle to create the moon and partially covered it with "Mustard Seed" Distress Oxide ink. I also used a little bit of white Stampin' Up ink too as I didn't want a solid looking moon.
I added some Distress Oxide Inks in two shades to create some definition in the colours. I used Wilted Violet and Chipped Sapphire. Using the Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I inked the edges of the card.
Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Tree Branch", "Barric" (the crow) and the spider which is part of their "Bugs" set.
I used a white Signo Pen to add highlights to the tree, crow and spider, I also added some stars using the same pen. I used a gold shimmer Sakura Gelly Roll pen to edge the moon.
Finally, using some sticky letters that I had in my stash from Scrapbooking, I added the word Spooked.
the touch of gold certainly brings the background to life with a beautiful shimmer, I can just imagine the crow pouncing on the spider, great make SamReplyDelete
