Lavinia Stamps "Carriage Dwelling" New Baby Card

I'm sharing a card I made a while back but for some reason didn't upload it.  The card features a Lavinia stamps stencil and stamp.

I masked off the left and bottom edges of the card, using low tack tape.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Carriage Dwelling stamp" using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.  I used the same ink to stampe the Personal Impressions sentiment (sorry, I don't know the reference number or name of the stamp set).

I made a mask of the carriage, by stamping the image on to a post-it note and then fussy cutting the shape, popping it over the stamped image on the card.

I lay the Lavinia Stamps "Waffle Stencil" over the top of the card and used two shades of Ranger Archival Ink through the stencil, using "Shadow Grey" at the bottom and "Periwinkle" for the higher area, fading the colour out towards the top and the right hand side.

I used Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink with a Lavinia Stamps "Hill Mask" to create the ground the carriage stands on.

Finally, I coloured the carriage using Derwent Inktense pencils water colour pencils applied with a paint brush.  I used a green fine liner pen to draw the grass adding little dots of pink Posca Pen for the flowers.  I use "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Ink, applied with a paint brush for the smoke coming out of the chimney of the carriage.

I removed the stencil and the mask and coloured the carriage uisng
