Lavinia Stamps "Astrid" on a "Feather Leaf Stencil" gel plate background

Up early this morning and made this card, while thinking about members of our family that I'm missing, especially the grand children.

I created the background using the Lavinia Stamps "Feather Leaf Stencil" on a gel plate background coated with PaperArtsy Acrylic Chalk Paints.  

The "Feather Leaf" detail is more obvious on the left hand side than the right, which dictated where I position the large Lavinia "Astrid" stamp. I inked up the stamp using Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I coloured the hair area with a metallic gold pen, added a touch of pink to her lips and white to her eyes.

I used the same "Acorn" Versafine Clair ink to stamp the sentiment which is part of a Simon Says Stamp set called "Clean Line Everyday".  

Finally, I added some splatters of bronze coloured Posca Pen to the background and then inked the edges of the card in the "Acorn" ink.
