As you will have noticed if you've visited here over the past few days, stamping grandma has been very busy ! Today I'm sharing another card created using one of my lovely Lavinia stamps - I had forgotten just how much I love these images until I dug out my box of stamps a few days ago whilst looking for something else !
Firstly I created a background using Distress Inks - Weathered Wood and Black Soot. I then stamped the Lavinia Chinese Lantern image using black Archival ink and the sentiment from a set by Chapel Arts stamps.
I highlighted parts of the Chinese Lantern image using a white Wink of Stella pen and dabbed Distress Stain in Pewter randomly over the background. I then sprayed pearl Smooch Spritz all over the layer to add a hint of subtle sheen.
Adding a red ribbon across the corner and matting the stamped layer over a piece of red card brings the whole thing to life I think. I found the grey pearls in my box of gems and they were just perfect as a finishing touch.
Thanks for popping in, hope you enjoyed today's project. Happy Crafting !
