Autumn Scene with Lavinia Stamps

Hello and welcome!

It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. Brenda is hosting and she chose the simple theme of "Anything Autumn"! We have a prize from Lavinia Stamps this week, the Spotty Toadstool, and a second prize - a Tim Holtz die. Hope you'll join in the fun this week for your chance to win!

I decided to use fall colors along with some Lavinia stamps to create my card.

To start out I used a deckle die to mask off around the edge. My die set was found at Michaels when they were marked down on clearance, but there are many deckle dies available. I also added a circle die cut for a moon. 


I inked with a mix of Distress inks in fall colors, then used a torn paper piece to ink up some hills. Then flicked some water droplets onto the card and let dry.
After removing the die, I stamped the fairy Aurora and Star Blossom using Versafine Onyx in with the help of my stamp platform

I've used Tim Holtz Quotations metallic stickers for a sentiment. (I seem to be using this sticker set a lot with my Lavinia cards.) 

White card stock was used as a base and I used a white Faber Castell Pitt marker for some highlights on the flower. A white gel pen would have been better, but all my white gel pens dry up after just a few uses and I am tired of replacing them. If you have a tip of what kind of gel pen works and doesn't dry up so quickly, or what else you use for white highlights, let me know in the comments! So frustrating when products don't work the way they should!!

Outstanding autumn card!

Pauline C said...

This is fabulous Ellie, I just love it. I’m very interested to hear of using a torn paper piece to sponge hills … I sponged my first ever hills for this week’s card and I cut a piece of acetate .. but I didn’t really like it as I thought the edges were too harsh. I will definitely try Paper 😀

Lovely card, Ellie! The background colors are beautiful and I love the whimsical fairy. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble Challenge #94. (I live in AZ and my gel pens dry up quickly. I tried a brand from Amazon called Boxun and they are lasting well. I may try Stampin' Up's "White Stampin' Chalk Marker" at some point. I have heard they last a long time.)

NanaConnie said...

Gorgeous, Ellie! Love the background colors. Thank you for playing along in our challenge at QKR Stampede this fortnight. We appreciate your support. Good luck in the draw.

Ellie, what an eye catching card you've created! Love the details of how you created the background, it's a perfect soft fantasy backdrop for Aurora! I like the white highlights on the plant, but like you I use a gel pen a couple times and they dry up, I've seen a couple suggestions in the comments, so may try them, too! Thank you for sharing your beautiful card and creative talents with us here at Double Trouble!!! -Donna

Ellibelle said...

Thanks for the suggestions, will look into these! The Stampin Up chalk marker sounds very promising especially.

Ida said...
