Lavinia Stamps "Tilly and Tango" Card


This was a quick monochrome card using Lavinia Stamps and a Funky Fossil stencil. Throughout all of this card, I have used Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.

I used the Funky Fossil "In the Spotlight" stencil with Versafine Clair "Monarch" to create the background "spotlight" area'.  I then used the same ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Filigree" stencil over the top to get the over all pattern.

Using "Monarch" again, I stamped the Lavinia mouse pair called "Tilly and Tango".  I then stamped the Lavinia "Star Cluster" and finally the sentiment, which is part of the Lavinia "Heartfelt Verse" set of stamps.

I added a few dots of white gel pen to the stars and for the eye area, with a touch of pastel pencil to ground the mice.


  1. I can think of several occasions this card is perfect for, simply beautiful Sam

  2. I love these cute dancing mice Sam and the spotlight stencil is perfect to show them off, and some very pretty background stencilling and also the circle of stars, and all using this very pretty purple ink. x

  3. Awesome spotlight design and love the stencil you used to create this xx

  4. Beautiful card! Is there any chance you can explain a bit further how you created it please? I am not quite understanding how you made it. I have all the products. Thanks so much! Sunshine.

    1. This is the link to the stencil https://www.funkyfossil.co.uk/product-page/in-the-spotlight) it comes in three pieces. I used some low tack tape to position the spotlight ray and the floor stretched oval shape. I then coloured all the area around it, so that when the two stencils were lifted it left the spotlight. I then put the Lavinia "filigree" stencil over the top and coloured the whole area, before stamping the mice and stars.
