Good morning all.
July has arrived, the months just seem to be flying by, but I’m looking forward to the summer.
It’s time once again for the new Lavinia stamps challenge, the theme this month is... While you were sleeping.
You could be the lucky winner picked at random to win a £40 voucher to spend in the Lavinia shop.
For my first card I used the following Lavinia Stamps.
Stamped all the images for this card with Clair versafine nocturnal ink.
Coloured the stone effect background with frayed burlap and pumice stone distress, used as a wash.
I also used shabby shutters distress ink as a wash for the grassy area, the steps were coloured with black soot distress ink also used as a wash. Tea dye distress ink was used on the door, for the reverse of the door I hand drew some lines and a handle with a thin black pen then also coloured with tea dye distress ink.
For the sky on the background behind the door, I used Broken China distress ink. The flowers were cored with pink sparkle pens.
I cut out part of the door so that it would open, then placed a background behind! I also cut a second door frame and decoupaged this!
For the highlights I used a white pen, a glitter pen and on the vine I also used a green glitter pen.
For my next sample, I used the following Lavinia stamps.
I used shaded lilac distress ink all over the card then went round edges with seedless preserves.
