Glug glug!

It’s mid month reminder time that time for the Creative challenge at Lavinia stamps. Up for grabs this month is £40 of LS vouchers. The theme is ‘ My favourite stamp’ … A wonderful theme !

I’m still loving the deep sea themed New release stamps and stencils so today’s inspiration was a no brainer! This is a large stamp and I love it!

The products used:

Jalandhar

Sea creatures

Pebble stencil

Foliage stencil

Pods stencil

The steps:

I did my usual ink spray mix on to good quality mix media card.

Then used some more ink from the spray bottles to do a little stencilling for extra interest.

Next the stamping. The same stamp at different angles.

I then lightly painted in the tops of the jelly fish using white gesso and once dry added some more ink used neat like paint from the spray bottles.

I then carefully over stamped the tops only.

I continued to add more colour and highlights with gel and paint pens. I also began to add dimension to the bubbles by adding blue ink and black and white highlights.

Finally the glitter and mounting.

I really hope you like it!

Don’t forget to check out the fabulous samples from the rest of the team for more inspiration and of course our friendly Facebook group

Good luck in the challenge!

      1. Your work is amazing! It would be really helpful if you could share the size of the paper you start with. I really struggle with what size to start with. Thx!

      2. Debra . It’s always A4. Then cut down to suit the picture. That size always varies. My work is quite larges. Mostly not card size. At least not small cards.

      3. Ok so basically 8 1/4 x 11 3/4 inches then cut down, that’s very helpful. Yes I realized you were mounting them more like pictures than cards. Beautiful and lovely. Thank you so much for the recent video. It really helped me with the techniques which is what I’m really trying to learn so I can do my own thing. I am so grateful for people like you who sacrifice their time to help all of us. Thank you again!
