Lavinia Stamps "Heart Sticker Stencil" play

I've had a few days off using Lavinia products, but this morning I decided to play with the new "Heart Sticker Stencil" which is part of a set of four you can purchase from Lavinia Stamps.

I positioned the aperture/heart outline onto my card base and then started filling in the heart detail.  Starting with the background shades, using five shades of Distress Oxide Inks applied with a blending brush (Speckled Egg, Tumbled Glass, Victorian Velvet, Chipped Sapphire and Tea Dye).

Using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the Lavinia "Stargazing" couple.  Using the removing the sticker stencil and placing the mask over the heart, I then stamped the tex, in second generation stamping, using the same ink with the Lavinia"Background Script" stamp.  Once dry, I coloured the area from the edge to the heart using two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Speckled Egg and Victorian Velvet.

Again using "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the word "Love" which is from a Lavinia stamp set called "Live the life"  which is a five word sentiment set. I edged the card in the same ink.

I added a little detail to the sky and the fairy wings using Derwent Inktense water colour pens.  I added touches of gold shimmer to the image using the "Clear Star" Gelly Roll pen.
