This is project number six using the new release "Winter Whispers" stamp set from Lavinia Stamps, I think this shows how much I like this collection. It just works so well with the existing Lavinia range.
For this card, I used the Lavinia aperture circle from the "Sticker Stencils - Set 5" with "Lost Shadow" Distress Ink to give a quiet background circle for the wreath.
I then moved on to the stamping, starting with the stamp from the new release called "Fairy Catkins" stamped in Versafine Clair "Acorn" a mid warm brown ink.
Next, I moved on to stamping the leaves using the Lavinia Stamps "Oak Leaves" stamp, stamped in two shades of Versafine Clair Ink: "Summertime" an orange coloured ink and "Acorn" the brown ink.
I coloured the leaves with a selection of Derwent Inktense pencils and a gold gel pen.
I moved on to stamping the berries, I think this berry stamp came with another Lavinia Stamp, but I don't recall which one. I stamped the berries in Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink. Once dry, I then coated the berries in red Posca Pen, adding dots of white gel pen, where I thought the light might hit the berries.
Using Versafine Clair "Summertime" orange coloured ink, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the wreath. The verse is called "Winter Spice".
Finally, I added some dots of gold gel pen and added a few highlights to various areas of the wreath using a white gel pen.
