Lavinia Stamps Fairy Thistle on "Pods" stencilled background

I've continued my play with Lavinia Stamps making this quick card.

I coated a 4' x 4" piece of card with pale blue "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then lay the new Lavinia Stamps "Pods" stencil over the top and used "Peacock Feathers" Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil to create the background pattern.

I decided to use a stamp I have had for a long time but not used for some time, the Lavinia Stamps "Fairy Thistle", which I stamped in Versafine Clair  Medieval Blue ink.  I used a Lawn Fawn "Hello" sentiment and stamped it in the same ink.

I coloured the Fairy Thistle pods using two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Peackcock Feathers and Wilted Violet.  I then gave them a little sparkle, using a silver glitter Signo Pen.  Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't really show up in the photo, but it is there.
