I’m happy today to be celebrating the release of new stamps from Lavinia. In particular, my favourite from this new Fairytale release – The Oracle.
So excited, I created a new paper crafting video with a pretty background just to showcase her.
Isn’t she just stunning? The new release includes a new set of 3 crows which I decided she needed, along with the tall Single Skeleton Tree and the Skeleton Tree Scene (smaller trees).
These Lavinia stamps are mostly silhouette designed thereby, making them absolutely perfect for sprayed backgrounds. (Or sponged, or brusho, haha, you get the idea – creative messy fun and ink fingers).
Because I just received the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Sprays,
I decided to use them for my background on today’s card. The colors I chose: Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint are a little on the bright side and I did that on purpose. There is a new Challenge monthly over on the Lavinia site and the theme is “Bright”….I think this card qualifies haha.
I created a video to share the steps to creating this card along with a supply list at the end of this post and also attached to the FREE PDF Download, just click the button to print/save
I also used Nuvo Shimmer Powders Solar Flare and Catherine Wheel to add some splatter and sparkle to my art piece and some “new to me” Uni- Posca Paint Markers which I’m totally in love with. You will see how I use both of these in the video.
