Well I hope you don't mind me being back again. Today's offering is created with Lavinia stamps. I bought some at he NEC and decided to use a couple of them.
So i stamped the door and pathway on post its and cut them out for masks. I laid the pathway mask down where I wanted it stamped and stamped the door first in black archival.This helped me lose the 2 steps on the door which didn't fit the picture I had in my head.
I then masked the door and stamped the pathway. I used black archival ink. Then I masked pathway again and inked upper part of background. I used crushed olive distress ink as a base for all card as I wanted a greenish hue to emanate to give the impression of age and neglect.
For browns i used tea dye, rusty hinge, brushed corduroy, and vintage photo. I darkened area around door with vintage photo and gathered twigs.
Then i tore a piece of copy paper and made the snow using tumbled glass and weathered wood.
I then stamped the rest of the picture. I used the creeping vine for the vegetation above door. I stamped it in first and second generation black archival. I also used the upper edge of it to stamp at the bottom.
The vegetation along snow ridges I stamped using a star shape that came in one of the sets, possibly the QVC one which on the Lavinia website is called stars 2.
As a finishing touch I added iced diamond stickles to snow and pathway and then I clear embossed the door to resemble glass.
As usual i hope you like my offering, Theresa xx.
