Lavinia Stamps "Pipin" and the holly wreath.

The last couple of days, I have made scenes, with a snow scene and a water theme.  Today I have opted for a Christmas theme, featuring the very cute Lavinia Stamps "Pipin"!

To create the holly wreath, I used one of the Lavinia Stamps from their £1 (pound) section called "Mini Holly", I multiple stamped initially in second generation and then first generation for a darker look using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  I coloured the berries with a red fetlt pen.

I stamped "Pipin" (also a pound stamp) and one of the "Whimsical Hares" in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I grounded the animals using a pencil.  

I then used "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide Ink applied with a paint brush to fill in the areas around the holly and give it more of a water colour background look.  

The sentiment is part of a Simon Says Stamp set called "Tiny Words Christmas" stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  I then edged the card with the same ink.
