Good Morning everyone, i hope you're having a good week
Today im sharing my first outing with this Lavinia dragon stamp
8x8" cardbase. I cut a piece of white card to fit my card front, i made a circle mask using my large circle dies from a piece of spare cardstock, using re-positional glue i attached it to my white card panel. I then painted inside the circle with clean water and sprinkled on brushos in shades of green and gold & red pixie powders. Let dry completely.
I mixed up some of the pixie powder with a little water to make a thick paint and stencilled it through a star stencil.
I then stamped some foliage with oxide ink, stamped the verse in grey archival ink in the middle. I then took a sunrays stencil and oxide inks and inked it all the way around the circle, concentrating more ink on the outside edge and fading inwards. Once completely dry i removed my mask.
I stamped the dragon 3 times with black archival inks, using my stamp platform i overstamped to get a nice solid black. I stamped the believe and splashed on some inks to the background to finish. Mounted onto black card and then my base card after rounding all the corners - to give a softer edge picking up on my circle.
A close up, you can see that the mica in the pixie powders and the oxide inks adds a slight resist and comes through the dragons so for the middle dragon i stamped him again onto white cardstock and cut out the middle part, i gently curved and added with glue gel which adds some nice dimension.
For my first outing of this stamp im pleased with it - it has the feeling of a dragon eye to me.
