Lavinia Stamps 'The Green Man Stamp' Tutorial

Thanks for popping by my Blog today.
I'm featuring one of the Brand new stamps 
from Lavinia Stamps called 'The Green Man' 
This is the large stamp.

I've used a 6 inch round Gelli Plate.
HOW TO..........
Brayer on Color Box 'Ocean' ink until Gelli Plate is covered.
Ink up the 'Tree Half R2' Stamp with Color Box ink 'Banana' 
 adding a small amount of Distress Oxide,
 'Spiced Marmalade' to the stamp also, 
for a bit of contrast.
 Stamp off the first generation of the ink onto copy paper 
then stamp firmly, straight onto the Gelli Plate
 keeping the image to one side
 so you can do exactly the same again
 with 'Half Tree L1'
 The 'trunk 'from both stamps should then be positioned
side by side, in the middle or your Gelli Plate.   
Take a Print using Lavinia Stamps Smooth Matt Card Stock.
Clean off your Gelli Plate with baby wipes and put it away.
To Complete.......
Ink up Lavinia Stamp 'Moon' with
 Distress Oxide Ink 'Worn Lipstick'
and stamp over to one side of your
 Art Work to add interest!
Ink up 'The Green Man Stamp' using
 Versafine Onyx Black and stamp this handsome
 chappie as your  main, central image. 
A few dabs here and there with a white pen
 and some dots with Rangers White Enamel.
Finally, using a blending tool and 
Distress Oxide 'Faded Jeans' 
blend the darker colour, all around the edge 
of your card to frame, before matting and layering to finish.
Please ask any questions you have.. pleased to help if I can.
