More Lockdown Lavinia Homework

Good morning everyone, 
I hope you are feeling well and that you had a lovely weekend. 
Wow, it was so lovely and warm on Saturday, 
Perfect for gardening, but what happened yesterday ? 
Oh it was so cold...such a shock.

As it is Monday , 
I have more 
Lockdown Lavinia Homework for you. 
This week we are going all festive,
and I thought we could make a start on our Christmas cards. 

You just can’t go wrong with a good old wreath card 

First I stamped with a green VersaFine ink pad and then added some oxide ink stamping. 
This helps to add depth and detail. 

I have gone for designs that are quite quick and would be good for batch marking .
The second one using my favourite feather as a Christmas tree. 

Some bubble wrap and Billy clean up card to start with 

Then some stamping, 
more ink, a moon and some snow. 

The Third design using the good old Acrylic block and ink background .

These are great to just make up and keep to one side 

Ready to be stamped up when needed. 

I love to add the background scene over the topper and the backing card. 

I do hope you will join in with some homework, 
After all for once we may all have our Christmas cards made early this year.
I am so pleased that I have 3 now...whoop
Earliest ever. 

A busy day for me in my craft room today 
Lots to do , 
Whatever you are doing, 
Please take care, look after yourself 
and stay safe 

Love and hugs
