I’m happy today to be celebrating the release of new stamps from Lavinia over at CraftStash. In particular, my favourite from this new Fairytale release – The Oracle.
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 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.
New to ordering from CraftStash? – they are a UK company (opening soon in the USA also) with an excellent selection of craft products. By signing up for their newsletter you get notified of all their sales and receive a 20% DISCOUNT on your FIRST order.
