Lavinia Stamps Tutorial ... Thistles.





Yo ho .. it's me again. A quick card today with a picture tutorial for you to follow if you wish to.
This card uses first, second and third generation stamping with various colours from the Versafine Range of ink pads. The card stock I've used is Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion. I turned the card over and blended the colours of Distress inks shown in the pictures, onto the reverse,white side of the card stock .

Crushed Olive, build up several layers using a blending tool.

Add more layers with Squeezed Lemonade

Finally, blend Bundled Sage around the edges.

 Take off first generation Versafine ink onto scrap paper.

Lavinia Stamps 'Thistles'
As you can see, the smaller Thistle 'bud' was inked up and then stamped off onto scrap to remove the first generation layer of ink. The large Thistle was inked and stamped straight onto the card stock.
All the stamps I've used are available from Lavinia Stamps.
Mat and layer your card onto a card base, .... job done!
I hope I've remembered to include everything in this tutorial.
Please message me if you have any questions.
Thank you all, so much, for the interest in my blog..... every comment is really appreciated.
