I had a rubbish night of sleep last night, so it was a relief to get up. It did mean that I had a head start on some crafting, which was a bonus.
Today I have used two Lavinia Stamps stencils. The first thing I did was lay the "Coral" stencil on some kitchen towel, I then lightly spritzed it with a couple of shades of Dylusion Spray Ink, I used Crushed Grape and London Blue. I then flipped the stencil on to an off cut of white card and smoothed over. I lifted the card and dabbed any surplus ink away, then gave it a blast on the low setting of the heat gun.
Unfortunately I didn't take any photos mid way as I really didn't think I would actually be making a card. But this one just kind of evolved.
I lay the Lavinia Stamps "Pebble" stencil over the background and lightly applied "Peacock Feathers" Distress Oxide Ink with a blending tool through the stencil, making the central area lighter and the edges darker.
I stamped the Lavinia Stamps fairy called "Celeste" in the middle of the card using "Medieval Blue" Versafine Clair ink.
Next I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Marine Kelp" in first and second generation using "Monarch" a purple Versafine Clair ink.
I then decided I wanted to introduce more mauve shades. I did say I had nothing in mind when I started making this! I used "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide ink with a blending tool, again, I applied a light shade in the middle and darker towards the edges.
I used the Lavinia Stamps "Shoal of fish" and "Sea Bubbles" stamp with Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.
Finally, I added some white and silver glitter highlights to a few areas using Signo pens.
