Lavinia Stamps Floral Wreath - Thinking of you card

This weekend, Lavinia Stamps have had a crafting extravaganza in conjunction with the release of 14 fabulous new stamp designs.  Lavinia Design Team member Eileen Godwin gave a demonstration which inspired me to make this card.

I used "Victorian Velvet" Distress Oxide Ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Ivy Stencil", fading the colour out to the edges.

I used one of the new release stamps called "Floral Wreath", with Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink for the lighter stamping and then Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink for the stamping in black ink.

I coloured the berries using a paint brush and shades of one of the new Lavinia Stamps "Elements' ink pads in the shade of Merlot.

The stamped sentiment is part of a Personal Impressions stamp set called "Square Essentials", stamped in "Nocturne" black ink.

Finally, I added Ranger "Glossy Accents" to the berries, to provide a 3D look to the card and set aside to dry.  Once dry, I mounted the image on to a card blank.
