Moments Like These from Lavinia Stamps and 7 Kids Crafts

I am back today with Walk through Wednesday for 7 Kids Crafts,  with a fun card featuring Lavinia Stamps, Moments like these.  This technique would work great with any of the Lavinia stamps that 7 Kids carries.

You will need ink for blending, your favorite cardstock, masking paper or sticky notes.  You can use a die to cut the circle for the sun or cutting machine, stamp and your favorite ink- just be sure it's not water reactive if your ink is, or you plan to use as.

Create your layout by masking off the moon and the snow.   I cut the snow by freehand.

Next you will take your lightest ink and lay down a light layer.    In this case I used Tattered Rose for my lightest color.  

Then your mid tone ink.  For this I used Worn Lipstick.

And lastly blend in your darkest color.   For this I used Seedless Preserves.   I feel like you get the best blend working back and forth among the colors.   


Once I had a blend I liked I removed my masking paper.

I then stamped the image with my stamp positioner.  I placed her so that some of the flower would be in front of the moon.   Once the image was stamped and I allowed time to ensure was dry I spritzed with water to allow the distress Oxide to react.    I then added Nuvo Glitter accents to the snow to add a bit of texture and sparkle to the snow.     I also used a white gel pen to add more texture. 

Lastly I matted my image on a black mat, which I feel made the image and colors pop.
