Lavinia Stamps Snail Swing Bed Card

I've played with a couple more new release Lavinia Stamps, to create this card. This card has a lot of sparkle, but sadly the photograph doesn't do it justice.  If the light is right tomorrow, I will take a little video and add it to this post.

For this card, I used the new Lavinia "Swing Bed (Large)" stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. I then stamped the snails which are part of the Lavinia "Snail Set" in two shades of Versafine Clair Inka:  Fallen Leaves and Pinecone.

I then set to work on the background.  I used the Lavinia "Lime Punch Element Ink" around and inside the stamped Swing Bed.  I then added the "Pine Element Ink around the edges to give more focus on the central area.

I used the Lavinia "Flurry Stencil" with two shades of "Elements Inks (Della Blue and Violet Chalk) through the stencil to create a leafy border to the swing bed.

I used one of the Lavinia "Fairy Charms", again stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I then used the long dangly stamp from the Lavinia "Floral Wreath", stamped in Versfine Clair "Shady Lane" to create the impression of trailing foliage.

I then started to highlight areas with a white and gold shimmer gelly roll pen.  I also added a few touched of red using a Posca Pen.
