Dragonfly catcher birthday card

over 60 minutes Green easy Card Making Birthday

After watching a video tutorial by Tracey from Lavinia Stamps, I was inspired to make this. The background was made by using a brayer and distress oxide inks. I then stamped a selection of Lavinia stamps with Versamark ink. Flicked the background with water and a fan brush to bleach. I then painted some of the flowers with brushos mixed with water. Highlighted some bits with white gel pen and then inked around the edge with a sponge and Versamark ink.This was then matted onto a piece of green card and then attached to a 5x7" kraft card blank.

Thank you, look forward to seeing what you come up with. I think I will treat myself to one of her big tree stamps or the green man next payday. I'm not normally a fairy kind of person but love all her animals. x

Lovely card, love Lavinia stamps went to her new shop in north wales a few weeks ago big mistake as I didn’t come out empty handed just an empty purse 😁😁

kirsty71

kirsty71

Thank you. I was planning to go to the shop when I visit my friend who lives just outside Wrexham, unfortunately the trip will have to wait now but is on my to do list when all this is over. I have started saving now for it, as I suspect I will be the same as you. Just hope she manages to ride this storm and keep trading. x
