Lavinia - Tree Godess Luna

This card is so far out of my comfort zone, I am amazed the concept appealed to me !  On a recent trip to a UK craft show I sought out the Lavinia Stamps stand.  This is a company I have watched online for quite a while wondering whether or not to buy.  What sold me was the product called SceneScapes which are backgrounds like the one used on this card.  There are beautiful designs and when I looked at the range (which I bought quite a few to try out) I could see just how they complemented the stamps, so I bought a few stamps as well.

I did have a problem with stamping out this image and eventually used a rocker type acrylic block plus Versafine Onyx black ink.  It did not stamp well and I needed to go over the image with a black marker.  Afterwards I looked online and someone suggested stamping on top of a ream of paper - will try that next time.  The birds were from an Inkylicious set called Daydreamer and the flowers inked up in Archival Berry Purple were from a Stamps Away set Pilkington Floral Silhouette.  The sentiment is from Flourishes Kids at Play.

I liked having the topper all prepared - it makes it a lot easier and silhouette stamps are a favourite of mine so I am looking forward to trying more out in the future.
