For this week I decided to ink up some Lavinia Stamps, I've been neglecting them long enough as much as I love them.
I started out by placing a mask out of torn printer paper over the bottom portion of the card and inked with Distress inks (Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire - in that order) using an ink blending tool. Somehow I am always drawn to these colors when inking a sky.
Before removing the mask I stamped the Spiral of Spells word stamp and flicked some water onto the background for a fun distress ink reaction with water. After removing the mask, I inked up the bottom portion with Black Soot distress ink. Then stamped the fairy, mushrooms and branches. All stamps are by Lavinia. The sentiment is a sticky sentiment from Tim Holtz' Quotations set. There are 4 sheets of stickers in this set, two printed on white and two printed on black.
Lavinia stamps are now available in the States. I found a retailer on Etsy a couple of years ago, and in the recent months also discovered Lavinia World, who carries lots of Lavinia stamps as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
