Lavinia Stamps "Lupin" the hare card

A quick play from me this morning using a Lavinia Stamp and stencil.

I stamped "Lupin" the hare using Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink, stamping it very lightly as I didn't want hard/solid lines. I used a mask to cover Lupin, while I applied green ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Feather Leaf" stencil.  I don't know which colour Archival Ink it was as I just used what was still on the brush, but I suspect it was "Peat Moss".

Removing the mask, I then coloured "Lupin" using a selection of Derwent Inktense pencils, applied with a brush.  The colours I used are:  Pink Flamingo, Amber, Mustard, Natural Brown and Dark Mink.  I then used a touch of white gel pen in a couple of areas too.

To ground Lupin, I used "Pumice Stone" Distress Oxide Ink, applied with a paint brush.  Then right under the feet, I used a pencil to create more depth of shadow.

Finally, I used a birthday greeting using the Clarity Stamps "Entwined Sentiments" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.


  1. A brilliant card featuring Lupin,

  2. Lupin is obsolutely adorable Sam and I love the way you have coloured him and added the Feather Leaf stencilling in the background, and the pretty fresh green matted layer is perfect with the kraft base card. I love hares and Lupin is definitely on my wish list. x
