Lavinia Stamps "Pipin" and the "Fairy Hives" Card


I'm still making the last few Christmas cards, here's the last one... I hope!

I used two shades of Distress Oxide Inks to create the background colour (Tumbled Glass and Speckled Egg).

I've used Lavinia Stamps for the main image.  Starting by stamping "Pipin" the hare and the "Tree Branch" in Versafine Clair "Fallen Leaves" brown ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Rain Forest" green ink, I stamped the dangling "Fairy Hives". I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment, which is part of a stamp set called "Tiny Words, Christmas" from Simon Says Stamp.

I used the Lavinia "Snowflakes" stamp set, stamped in Memento "London Grey" ink.

I then grounded Pipin by painting some shading below the hare using Distress Oxide Ink "Weathered Wood" grey ink.  I added some touches of silver sparkle to the area and also to the middle of the snowflakes, using a silver glitter Signo Pen.  I added some white highlights to give a snowy look to the tree branches using a white Posca Pen.
