Lavinia Stamps Feather Leaf Stencil & Fox Valentine's Card

Karen Telfer created a fab little tutorial for a Valentine's card that she shared on her Facebook Group, so I thought I'd have a try. 

In Karen's demo she used some of the small Lavinia Stamps hares, but I've used those quite a lot, so decided to opt for a different animal - the fox!

I masked off an area of the blank card an filled the central area with shades of pinks.  I used Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries Distress Oxide Inks.

I spritzed the Lavinia Stamps "Feather Leaf" stencil with water and then positioned the wet side down on to the inky surface for a few seconds.  I lifted the stencil off and blotted the area dry before removing the masking tape.

I used fox stamps from two Lavinia Stamps sets - Fox Set 1 and Fox Set 2, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink,  Using the same ink, I stamped the hearts (one of the Lavinia Stamps pound stamps) and the word "Love" from the Lavinia Stamps "Live the life" stamp set.

Finally, I positioned the "Feather Leaf" stencil over the top of the card and added a little subtle colour using the "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Ink to ground the foxes.
