Lavinia Stamps "Forest Temple" Card

Our four year old Grandson took a turn for the worse yesterday and was admitted to hospital.  With the Corona Virus cases escalating daily, I've been terrified that if he hasn't got it he will pick it up in hospital, he falls into the "vulnerable"category.  So of course, I couldn't sleep and was up at silly o' clock and decided to play with some of the new Lavinia Stamps.

I used a gelli plate background for the base, it was grey with emerald coloured Brusho splatters.

I stamped the new "Forest Temple" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  In the background, I painted in some brickwork and then coloured the tree and the window using Distress Oxide Inks.

I stamped the "Fairy Barnacle" and coloured them using "Seedless Preserve" Distress Oxide Ink.  Then stamped the "Creeping Vine" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

I stamped the "Path" and then two of the new "Wild Hares" stamped in Versafine Clair "Pine Cone" brown ink.  I then edged them with a white Posca Pen.

I added the "Berry Leaves" in the bottom right, stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.
