Star Gazing – Lavinia Stamps

It has been almost a year since I posted but I never stopped creating I just never found the time to add my work. I hope to fix that over the next couple of weeks. Todays creation started with two stamps from Lavinia Stamps; Star Gazing and Meadow Grass. Once I had the stamps picked out I started creating my background. The paper is 140 pound Hot Press Water Colour paper. I inked the background from top to bottom with Tim Holtz colours; Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Green Moss and Expresso. Once I was happy with the background I started stamping the grass, then the star gazing couple and then the grass. All were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, I then coloured the images with Copic Black 100, the rocks with Touch Markers CG9 and CG7. I then made the stars by mixing Copic Opaque White with water and then spraying the card so it looks like stars.  I have jars of MicroBeads in all colours of the rainbow so I used them add some depth to the Meadow Grass.  The wings on my fairies are coloured with Stampin Up Gold Glitz Dazzling Details.  Finally I added the moon, this was created using Opalite Sterling Frost.
