After a few days of feeling really under the weather with a nasty cough and cold I decided to rouse myself and do a bit of crafting. I have finally produced a card using one of my stash of Lavinia stamps that I have bought over the past 12 months. The end product isn't perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it, but only after sweat and toil with my brayer... I'm sure a lot of you will know what I mean.... practice and patience make perfect, unfortunately I haven't got much patience... I'm definitely 'Taurus the Bull'...
I bought it at the NEC because I really love it. I have tried to produce some colours different to what I've previously seen posted using this stamp. I used A5 Lavinia smooth card, along with various adirondack and distress inks. To create the sky I used both Adirondack denim and distress black soot and victorian velvet. For the water, a combination of distress stormy sky and adirondack Juniper. I made the carriage look as though it's coming out of the evening mist.
A great welcome to everyone who takes a few minutes to visit my blog, and hope you will return. I started off scrapbooking, but making cards soon overtook and I really enjoy seeing the end results. I enjoy blog hopping to see the wonderful creations from other crafters, there really are some talented, friendly people out there.
