Lavinia Stamps "Bird on a Floral Wreath" card

I felt the urge to make a less is more type of card, resulting in this one using Lavinia products. 

I used two shades of Archival Inks (Pink Peony and Forget-Me-Not) through the Lavinia Stamps "Elegance" stencil.  Focusing in one corner and fading out towards the edges.

I used Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink to stamp the Lavinia "Floral Wreath".

I used the same ink to stamp the Waffle Flower Stamps sentiment, part of their "Essential Sentiments" stamp set.

I used two shades of Versafine Clair Inks.  "Twilight" stamped in second generation stamping and then "Warm Breeze" to stamp the little bird, which is part of the Lavinia Stamps "Bird Collection" stamp set.

I coloured the wreath and the bird with Derwent Inktense Water Colour Pencils.  I added extra details with some Posca Pen splatters and also a gold shimmer and silver glitter pen.


  1. Beautiful detailed stamps and colouring against the subtle stencils background

  2. Amazing and very stunning CAS. Sometimes less is more as the case here Sam xx

  3. This is a brilliant CAS card Sam, and the stencilling is so pretty used in the background, and the floral wreath and birds go beautifully over the top, and some lovely spattering as well...so elegant! x
