Lavinia Stamps "Swing Bed" and the hares

I seem to be on a roll, my third card for the day.  I'm amazed considering how I was feeling about crafting earlier on this morning.This card is made using a selection of inks and Lavinia stamps.

Starting with the Lavinia "Swing Bed" stamped in Versafine Clair "Spruce" green ink, I then added colour within the swing bed area using the remains of "Paradise Teal" Ranger Archival Ink on my blending brush.  I then created the green landscape using "Leaf Green" Archival Ink with a Lavinia Stamps "Hill Mask".

Around the "Swing Bed" I used "Majestic Violet" and Cobalt" Ranger Archival Ink, using the darker shade around the edges of the card.  I then inked the edges with Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink.  I used the Lavinia Stamps "Background Script" stamp with Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink to get the slight impression of text, filling the blank areas.

I then used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink to stamp the black flowers and leaves, which are Lavinia Stamps "Vine Set" and "Mini Lucky Clover" stamps.  I then stamped the two hares in the same ink, which are part of the "Wild Hare Set" of stamps.

Finally, I used a white gel pen for highlights and various coloured Posca pens to add flowers.
