lavinia stamp challenge #4 Spring Colours

The latest Lavinia stamps challenge is to use spring colours so I dug out my gelli plate again and got stuck in with some yummy greens.  The leaves are just sprouting on the trees around here and have that lovely fresh colour.

I picked up some library cards in Waterstones recently as I thought they'd make a nice change from making tags ...

I inked up my gelli plate and then used my Adirondack 'wild plum' ink pad to stamp my zen toadstools onto the plate.


After using a sponge to intensify the greens I tapped my 'wild plum' inkpad onto an acetate block, spritzed it with water then used this to paint in my toadstools.

A few splashes of ink, some extra stamping and a hint of white gel pen later and I was happy with my library card.

The pocket got some stamping to but I decided that I didn't like the two together!

So I put my tags in the pocket ...

... and turned the library card into a card, which took me forever and reminded my why I rarely make cards!!!
