Lavinia Stamps "Astrid" with Cherry Blossom Card

Today, I've been playing with the new Lavinia Stamp called "Astrid".  Although I have used her hair in several recent projects, this is the first time that I have used the whole image.

I used one of the Cling Film backgrounds I prepared a couple of weeks ago for this card.  For this background I used three Distress Oxide Inks:  Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet and Weathered Wood.

I stamped "Astrid" using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I then multi stamped the "Cherry Blossom" (also a Lavinia Stamp) in Versafine Clair "Fallen Leaves" brown ink, colouring the flowers and the lips of Astrid with "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Ink applied with a paint brush.

I used a white Signo pen for the colour in the hair and in the eyes.
