Lavinia Stamps "Tick and The Crows" Card

I'm still playing with my new Lavinia goodies, this time just stamping on a Brusho background. 

I rummaged through my stash of prepared backgrounds and came across a Brusho piece.  I've no idea what powders I used or when I made it, so it seemed a good time to use it for this background.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps new "Tick" time piece in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, then stamped it again on a Post it note.  I fussy cut the post it and placed the mask over the top of the clock on the Brusho background.

I then stamped the new "Texture 1" and "Texture 2" stamps in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.

Next, I stamped the text using Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" a mid blue coloured ink to stamp the "Steampunk Script". Then removed the mask.

I decided an older Lavinia stamp set called "The Crow Set" would be an ideal pairing for this, so stamped two of the crows, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I wasn't happy with the feet of the lower crow, so added three roses using the new Lavinia "Rose Set", stamped in two shades of Versafine Clair ink:  Tulip Red and Morning Mist.

Now I started the finer detail.  I used a metallic gold pen for the edge of the time piece.  I used Derwent Inktense red pencil for the roses, adding touches of red Posca Pen and then further detail on the roses with a white gel pen. I used the same pen to add detail to the crows too.

Finally, in the bottom right hand corner, I added "Time Flies" which is the name of a new Lavinia sentiment stamp set, stamped in Versaine Clair "Twilight".  I then inked the edges of the card in Twilight ink and mounted the card on to dark blue card and a white card blank.


  1. Love this one,great choice of stamps and colours

  2. This is a lovely Brusho background and the added texture stamps and script work well Sam, also I love the timepiece with the added crows and the little flowers which are perfect as the focal image. x
