Hi everyone, today I would like to share another Lavinia Christmas scene - I really love making these and mixing up the various elements from my new and older stamps!
I cut a square of stamping card and created a circle of softly blended Elements ink using a circle mask, then used the reverse mask to add a little shading inside the circle. I created landscape by blending more Elements inks using my Mini Hill Masks, then added stamping - first the pinecone wreath, then background trees using 2nd generation stamping with paper copies of my hill masks in place, then little houses, foreground trees and snowflakes. I added a sentiment, then highlighted it plus my trees and pinecones with Sakura Stardust pen. I added lights in the windows with yellow Stardust pen and some teeny gems, then edged the panel with dark blue marker pen and matted onto silver mirri card and a 6" card blank.
Here is the usual angled pic to show the sparkle.
