Lavinia Stamps "Lavender - Just for you" card

Here's a quick card I made this morning using a couple of Lavinia Stamps. 

I started with a 5x5 card blank.  In the bottom right hand corner I started to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Lavender" using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" for the stems and "Purple Delight" for the flower heads.  I multi stamped in both first and second generation stamping.

I lay the Lavinia Stamps "Waffle Stencil" over the top of the stamping, applying "Shadow Grey" Archival Ink through the stencil with a blending brush, keeping the stencil design close to the stamping and fadeing out towards the top and the left.

To ground the stamping, I used "Mowed Lawn" and "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide inks, slightly diluted and applies with a paint brush.  When dry, I used a 2B pencil to make the area a little darker in the shadow areas.


  1. Your choice of colours is beautiful Sam, love your stamps and stencilled background

  2. This is just so elegant and pretty Sam with the beautiful stems of Lavender and the bits of added colour ground them perfectly, and the soft background Waffle stencilling looks beautiful. x
