Yes it’s that time of the month again! Hello November!! Time for a Creative challenge at Lavinia stamps. Congratulations to last month’s winner . Up for grabs this month is £40 of LS vouchers. The new theme is ‘glitter and gold’ who doesn’t like a bit of glitz and sparkle… come on, you know you want to!! It’s a need really!
Today’s offering is a multi layered piece with lots of gold and twinkle.
I used the following stamps and stencils:
I sprayed some ink on to my craft mat with water and mopped it up using multifarious mixed media card.
I trimmed the card down and decided the make a feature of the shape left by the ink. I turned it into a sun.
Using torn copy paper and ink I added a hill. I masked this using the paper and stencilled either side towards the top of the picture.
I masked off the foreground again and stamped the mushrooms using a lighter colour ink at the top for the tallest one.
The wreath stamps where stamped repeatedly either side in different colours.
I did the same again this time using gold acrylic paint. I cleaned the stamp immediately afterwards.
I stamped and coloured the single berries.
I stamped a final layer of berries using the mini berry stamp and added little highlights on top.
Some shadows and wind lines were added using soft pastels and paint pens . Gold and white dots were added to the mushroom tops.
The verse was stamped along the bottom, the piece mounted and lots of diamond sparkles dotted on top.
A berry fest indeed!
