Yes it’s the mid month reminder of the Creative challenge at Lavinia stamps. You could be a winner of £40 of LS vouchers. The theme is: ‘Beneath the moon’. Totally magical!
For today’s inspiration I’m delighted to be using some of the stamps recently featured on Hochanda TV.
These are the stamps used:
I began using an ink spray background.
I trimmed the page down and intensified the colour using permanent inks and make up brushes.
I stamped the tree and painted part of the moon using white gesso.
Next I used the gesso to paint over the tree.
I used watercolour markers to paint the tree painting the colours light to dark.
I then over-stamped this using black ink.
I added colour to the moon using chalk pastels and coloured the tree using watercolour pens and paint pens.
Next I stamped the leaves using both large and small in different coloured ink; black ; blue and dark pink. I also stamped the berries and coloured over these using paint pens and coloured pencil.
I added some detail to the foreground again using the paint pens. I added a shadow under the tree using a charcoal pencil. The hare and the verse were stamped in black. I also added a shadow under the hare.
The close ups:
I hope you like it!
I’m loving the entries so far. There are some totally stunning designs!
Good luck! Till next time…
