Lavinia Stamps "Sky" on an "Ambiance" background

More Lavinia Stamps play making this card.

I masked off the area around a circle and used the Lavinia Stamps "Ambiance" stencil with two shades of Archival Inks:  Peony Pink and Violet.  Around the very edge of the circle, I used Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink to pull the eye to the central area.

I used Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink to stamp the fairy "Sky".  I used the same ink to create the landscape Sky sits on.

I used Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink and "Monarch" purple ink to stamp the "Small Branches" to create the look of foliage growing.

I coloured the wings of Sky using Derwent Inktense Water Colour Pencils.  

I added dots of colour to the landscape using a white and pink gel pen and a yellow Posca Pen.  Adding touches of glitter and shimmer to the image using gel pens.


  1. Such a sweet fairy with the pink glittery wings Sam, and the stencilling is so pretty in the background, and the added branches on the left and the tips of these used for foliage make the perfect background and love all the pink and purple tones you have used. x

  2. A touch of magic here,Sky blisters against the background
