Bay leaf Cottage

Good morning everyone, 
I do hope your Thursday has started well. 
I have already been on grandma duties, boys up dressed and safely delivered to nursery. 
Although Jenson did say
‘No nursery, grandmas house today ‘
So I may just get a phone call later…

Today is the day that the new Lavinia stamps are available on the website. 
So I have another sample to share with you. 

This one uses the largest of the new lodge stamps.
Bay leaf  Cottage. 

I started by stamping the cottage in black Versafine Clair ink and on water colour card. 

Next I used my Elements ink pads to create the sky 

Followed by some land. 

I then used my watercolour paints to add more detail. 
I do love the rich colours. 

I adore the new silhouette foliage stamps, so I added these. 
Next some highlights and shadows. 

Plus the little charms .
These little Fairy charms are such a great addition to our collection .

Here is a closer look at the cottage.

So many possibilities with these new stamps. 

Thanks for joining me, and I hope you have a lovely day. 
I must get on as I have a long list of jobs to do before 
picking the boys up at 5pm. 

Take care all 

Love and hugs 
Jo xxxx
