Lavinia Stamps February 2020 Hochanda TV Show, Sample Preview - Set 1

It's time to preview another sample that I have made for Lavinia Stamps for their forthcoming Hochanda TV shows.

For this sample I have used a 6" gelli plate with two Colorbox Inks (artichoke and grape shades),lightly brayered on, this provides a nice quiet and calm background.  Using a fan paint brush, I splattered turquoise Brusho droplets onto the gel plate before pulling the image.

The first stamping was "Druid's Inn" tree, which I stamped in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I then coloured the tree using Distress Oxide Inks in "Mowed Lawn" and "Vintage Photo" shades.

Using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" a teal coloured ink, I stamped the "Berry Leaves".  Using a Memento ink in the shade of "Pear Tart", I stamped the "Mini Berry", adding highlights with a white Posca pen.

I decided the image needed a figure, so used a fairy from a set called "Three Dancing Fairies", stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist".  I added the word "Dreams", which is part of the set called "Never Let Go", stamped in Versafine Clair "Acorn" ink.

I added two shades of Lavinia "Moon Dust" a blue/green one to the hanging foliage and a silver holographic one to the fairy.

Finally, I cut a circle mask to lay over the top of the image I had created and splattered three shades of Distress Oxide inks (Broken China, Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn) to cover an area where I had managed to transfer some ink onto the white area in error.
