Raven's treasure box

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! 

It's time for a new Lavina World challenge featuring Lavinia stamps.  We are a bi-weekly challenge blog and the theme is always "Anything Goes".
Here is my inspiration for Challenge #36


This was such a fun box to create as it was for a special friend!



The background is made from alcohol inks, then I tore a piece of paper and inked the mountains in.  I then placed Raven where I wanted her and went from there with the rest of the scene.  I always have a general idea of what I want to do however when I get going I just go with the flow.   I used a metal wing and covered it with black gesso and then inked it with Alchemy Fire Ruby wax, then attached to Sirlus where his wings are. I added the sentiment bar and the corner pieces and then I used Modge Podge over the complete top.

Lavinia Products used:
Raven LAV516
Sirlus LAV560
Moon Pods LAV384
Mini Castle LAV215
Hanging Lanterns LAV360

VersaFine Clair Inks :
Nocturne
Fallen leaves
Twilight

Zelith the beautiful mermaid

 Happy Thursday all!  I am very excited to announce that I am now a member of the Lavinia World Design team.... we have a new challenge starting today so be sure to join in the fun.... the winner of the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to spend at Lavinia World .




To create this picture I started with Alcohol inks on an 8 x 10 piece of Yuppo  paper, I did the drip process and then dabbed alcohol ink around the edges and different areas until I got the effect I wanted. I then applied the lift ink and transferred to Hammermill Premium color copy cover paper.  I always stamp my focal image first and then work from there.  When I had everything stamped I then took some Tim Holtz distress crackle paste and added some bubbles with the stencil on the edges. I added some Wink of Stella to the crackle paste and glitter to her tail.  On the seaweed I added some rhinestones. 

Products used:

LAV 616 Zelith 
LAV 423 Fairy Barnacle
LAV436 Seaweed
LAV 170 Sea Creatures
LAV 621 Fish Set 
LAV 447 Deeper that the Ocean
LAV 629 Sea Tangle

Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil
Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paste
Ranger Alcohol ink Indigo
Ranger Alcohol ink Stream
Ranger Alcohol ink Mermaid
Ranger Alcohol ink Pistachio
Ranger Alcohol Ink Sunshine Yellow
Tim Holtz Yuppo paper

VersaFine Clair Nocturne

You can find all the products I used for this picture at Lavinia World, there service is amazing and they are quick to ship!
