Lavinia World - Lavinia Stamps - The Oracle - is a die cut too!

 Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! 

It’s time for a new Lavinia World Challenge featuring Lavinia stamps.
          We are a bi-weekly Challenge Blog and the theme will be Anything Goes using stamps
(either rubber or clear, but no digi stamps). 
                               Details are found under the "rules" tab on the Challenge Blog.

 Lavinia World Challenge has a
NEW Facebook group called, Anything Lavinia (click here
 another place where you can enter the Lavinia World Challenge.
With one exception...

Your card/project must include anything Lavinia (stamps, papers)
if added to the Anything Lavinia Facebook group. 

The stamps were all stamped with Fairy Hugs - Raven
This was a fun project.  I started out with some Toned Gray paper.
First up was to use a diecut circle for my moon.  I placed it under the Lavinia Stamps stencil - Foliage and taped the "moon" so it wouldn't move to the stencil. Next i taped the stencil and with the moon to the top of the paper.  Starting around the moon first i ink blended Distress Oxide Ink - Tumbled Glass.  Then i added Distress Oxide Ink - Peacock Feathers and then Distress Oxide Ink - Faded Jeans.
I removed the stencil and stamped, the 4 Lavinia stamp trees.  Using Fairy Hugs Ink - Raven allowed me to stamp all of the trees and then emboss the entire front with clear embossing powder.
Next i got out some Gesso and watered it down and used a fan brush to splatter some "snow".
Once that was dry to took the paper over to the sewing machine and stitched around the outside with black thread.
Now for the "fun" part.  I stamped Lavinia Stamps - The Oracle on to the same Toned Gray paper and die cut her with the new Fairy Cuts die called, the Sheperd.  I wanted the Oracle to be like a "chipboard" element so i die cut the Oracle/Sheperd 3 more times out of a lightweight chipboard. I glued the layers together to make the chipboard Oracle.
I decided to add one of the Owls from Lavina Stamps - Brodwin and Maylin and also created the chipboard piece, but this time i had to hand cut each layer. 
I pulled out a Wooden Wall Word home decor wall art and mod podged the tree layer to the top.  I also Mod-Podged the top to seal it. 
I put Mod Podge on the back of the Oracle and the Owl and adhered them on top of the tree scene.  I also sealed both the Oracle and the Owl with Mod Podge.
