It's the start of yet another Month, April is good, it has my Birthday in it, lol, more crafty stash for me !!!!!
It's also see the start of another Lavinia Stamps Challenge, the theme for April is 'Lemon and Lime', this was quite a challenge for me too, you know how I like to use loads of colour in my work, lol, so I really enjoyed making these 2 samples.
6" x 6" card, stamps used are........
Field Grass, Vine, and one of the brand new Hare stamps, which will be on the website soon, or you can buy them at Alexander Palace on the 11th & 12th April.
I used Distress inks for the background, also for the vine and the grass. I stamped the Hare using Black Versafine ink, and then used yellow, green and stardust Stickles to give it some dimension and sparkle.
My 2nd project is a 5" x 5" frame with a small canvas in the middle,
Stamps used were.......
I used white Gesso to prime both the frame and the canvas, once it was dry using Luminarte Silks in Lime and Lemon, with a paint brush I painted a cross hatch design onto the canvas, layering it up in places to give a deeper colour. I them stamped all the Dandelions and the bee in Black Versafine ink, using stickles and Liquid pearls to paint them with.
I stamped the sentiments onto the frame in Black Versafine ink too, and the stars in yellow Versafine ink, and of course some stickles, a gold pen and some Treasure Gold gilding wax.
