Lavinia Stamps Fairy Bell and Fairy Orchid Card

Today, I took delivery of the new and long waited for Versafine Clair inks.  There are twelve new colours in total and as expected they are absolutely fabulous.  I of course couldn't wait to get to play with them, so I quickly got cracking on this card.

In the background, I have used the new "Lilac Bloom" ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Pods" stencil, fading out he colour from right to left.

I then stamped the flowers choosing two Lavinia Stamp sets "Fairy Orchid" the taller flower and "Fairy Bell Set" the shorter flower. I stamped the stems first using two shades of the new ink, using "Grass Green" and "Avocado".  I then stamped the flower heads using the new "Hawthorn Rose" ink.

To ground the flowers, I created a landscape using the Lavinia Stamps "Hill Mask" with Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I used dots of Posca and gel pens to create the flowers on the ground.  

 I added splattters of white paint to break up the stencilled surface a little, I also added touches of 2B pencil for low-lights on the flowers and white gel pen to highlight areas of the stamped flowers.


  1. Beautiful flowers and some very pretty new VC ink colours too Sam, and I love the pods stencilled in the background..a terrific card design. x
