Lavinia Stamps "Indra" on a spray ink background

Today, I have been using my Lavinia Stamps again to create this card.

 I used Wow! Clear embossing ink and the Lavinia Stamps "Indra" the moth stamp on white card, coating the stamped image with "Wow! Angel Eyes Embossing Powder and heat set.

Over the stamped image I brushed on Pabeo Drawing Gum.  This provides a protective coating to what ever is being covered, which once dry can be rubbed off at a later date.

I then put the piece of card in my spray box and spritzed three shades of Dylusion Spray inks on to the surface.  The colours I used were London Blue, Crushed Grape and Fresh Lime.  Any ink left on the surface, I puffed away using a Tim Holtz hand puffer thing sending the ink to the edges of the card.  I set the card to one side for a couple of hours to dry while I took the dog for a walk.

Once dry, I was able to rub off the drawing gum using my finger.  This revealed the original white card base and the turquoise embossed image.

Using the same Wow! ink pad and embossing powder, I added the heat embossed Lavinia Stamps sentiment, which is called "let your spirit take flight".

In the bottom right hand corner and up part way of the right hand side, I stamped the "Vine Flourish" using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I used the same ink to edge the card too.

Next, I used the Lavinia Stamps "White Orbs stencil" with white Pan Pastels to create the idea of movement.  I dotted a white Posca Pen and a silver glitter Signo Pen for added detail to Indra and to the background.  Then mounting the card on to a piece of black card and then a white card blank.
