Lavinia Stamps Scene Scapes

Hello, Kirsten here, happy Monday.
 I hope everyone had a great weekend. Thanks for all the comments you’ve been leaving since the start of the Lavinia Stamps promotion, which runs until Sunday night, so you’ve still time to enter the giveaway.
Two quick cards to show you today. Lavinia Stamps scene scapes are a great if you need a card n a hurry, or if your brain refuses to work & won’t give you any idea on how to create a nice background – as happens to me much too frequently.
All I did for this card was apply Chartreuse Sparkle Medium through the That Special Touch
 daisy silhouette stencil onto the Scene Scapes 01 C6 card. I also masked off the butterflies while I applied the Chartreuse & when it was dry, replaced the stencil & applied Diamond SM for the butterflies.

(I've just noticed that these photos seem blurred. Apologies for that. Lisa has all my samples now, if I can get hold of the cards to retake the photos I will)


For this card I used the Pink Equinox scene scape. I stamped the Zen Tall Mushrooms onto the card with Onyx Black Versafine & heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I used a white pen to colour the clear sections of the stems & also dotted white onto the tiny mushrooms in the background.
I stamped the tops of the mushrooms onto Super Smooth white card, painted the windows with watered down Sunshine Satin Silkies, cut them out & glued them to the scene scape with

Using a small Spellbinders circle die as a template, I drew a very fine pencil line in the centre of the moon, then stamped the Card-io Flutterby Garden butterfly with Onyx Black Versafine ink, starting first at 12, then 6, then 3 & 9 before filling in the spaces. Once the ink was dry I erased the pencil line & finished with Stardust Stickles on the centres of the stars.


You’ll notice that with most of my samples this month I didn’t add a sentiment to them. Apart from one, I decided a greeting would detract from the images, so I left them out.
