I really, really like the new Lavinia stamp called "Cedar". it works well in so many different situations but I like the look of it as a stand alone stamp too. I think it has a sight Oriental feel about it. Anyway, I decided I wanted it to be the star of the show, so made this card.
In my stash of prepared backgrounds, I found one where I had mopped up Distress Inks on to a piece of card, so decided this would be perfect for the base.
I multi stamped the "Cedar" branch over the surface, using Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink. I then edged the card with the same ink. I then mounted the card on to a white card base.
Using the same ink, I stamped the Lavinia "Just for you" sentiment, part of the "Heartfelt Verse" sentiment stamp set, then die cut it. I added foam pads to the back of the sentiment then mounted it in the middle of the card.
I have added a little silver sparkle to some of the tips of the Cedar spines using a glitter pen, unfortunately it doesn't show much in this photo.
