Lavinia Stamps "Block Print Stencil" hare card

I'm back from three nights away at the caravan and I have missed my crafting, so while the first load of washing was in the machine, I sat down and made this card using a Lavinia Stamps stencil and a handful of their stamps. 

I used three shades of Archival Inks:  Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green and Forget-Me-Knot through the Lavinia Stamps "Block Print" stencil, using the greens at the base and the blue at the top to replicate the idea of land and sky.

Using Versafine Clair "Acorn" and "Morning Mist" I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Tree of Hope", colouring it with Derwent Inktense Water Colour Pencils.

To fill the void under the tree, I used Versafine Clair "Verdant" light green ink to stampe the "Words of Spring" verse.

Next I stamped the hares.  Both are part of the Lavinia Stamps "Wild Hare Set", stamped in second generation stamping using Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  I then added extra colour using Derwent Inktense pencils and Van Goch Pastel Pencils.

I stamped the "Just For You" sentiment in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. The stamp is part of the Lavinia Stamps "Heartfelt Verse" stamp set.

Finally, I used one of the Lavinia Stamps "Hill Masksa" to create the landscape with Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I added touches of Posca Pen in yellow and orange to give the impression of flowers in the grass.  I also used a white gel pen to add highlights to the hares and the tree.
