52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Friday 1 November 2019

Lavinia Stamps Design Team make for November 2019 challenge (Winter Wonderland)

The first of the month means that there is a new challenge theme on the Lavinia Stamps site.  The theme for November 2019 is "Winter Wonderland".

If you enter this challenge, your name could be randomly picked to win £40 of vouchers to spend on lovely Lavinia goodies!  

For this card, I used Distress Oxide Inks for everything but the sentiment, where I used a Versafine Clair "Nocturne" shade of ink.

Using the Oxides, I started by using a wash of Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood to create the sky and just shades of Weathered Wood for the ground area.

I used two shade of Oxides to stamp the trees, Weathered Wood and Iced Spruce, using two Lavinia Stamps "Fairy Fir Tree Small" and "Fairy Fir Tree 2 Small".

I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" to stamp the "Forest So Green" sentiment.  Finally, I used some Stickles called "Frosted Lace" to add a little sparkle to areas of the snow in the foreground.
