Lavinia Stamps "Winter Berries" on a "Pods" Pan Pastel Gelli Plate background

A couple of weeks ago, I had a play session with the gelli plate and some of the new Lavinia Stamp stencils, so I decided to make an Autumnal themed card using one of the backgrounds I had prepared

For the background I had used the Lavinia Stamps "Pods" stencil with Panpastel colours and acrylic paint to lift the image.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Oak Leaf Branch" stamp using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

I then stamped the "Winter Berries" and the "Red Leaves" sentiment (both by Lavinia Stamps) in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  

At this stage, I decided I didn't like the size of the image, it seemed to be dominated by the green leaves, so I cropped the card till I was happier with the way it looked.

I used a Distress Oxide ink called "Fired Brick" around the edges of the card to provide more Autumn warmth.  I then coloured the berries using a red Posca Pen.  Finally, I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the berries and left over night to set.
