 I loved working with the beautiful blueprint stamps last month, and today it is the turn of the freesia set.
My first card uses the larger image stamped in brown ink onto watercolour paper coloured using walnut stain spray and clear embossed. I used bleach to lift the colour from the flowers, then tore round the edges. The base card was randmly stamped with the geometric stamps from the same set using distress oxide ink and smudged with the same tea dye ink and old paper  to taske the white down. The sentiment comes from the calla lily set

 I used a stamping platform to create the next cards, using a 7.5" square of white card , and still using the large flower stamp stamped 8 times in green ink and coloured with watercolour pencils. The sentiment is from the wild cornflower set, cut out using a punch and edged with marker pen.

The second version used a 7" square of card , which gives more of a wreath effect. The images was first stamped in light green ink,  then again in the gaps using the darker green ink.
The flowers of the darker image were coloured with watercolour pencils, and the sentiment from the freesia set stmaped onto a circle of white card again for the centre.

 I also used both flower images to create candles, this time colouring the images with marker pens on the reverse side of the tissue paper.


  1. Fabulous results using this gorgeous freesia image Veronica, and I particularly love the wreath shapes, and all such great colours, and also the super candles too. x

  4. Wow! Such gorgeous creations. I was really interested to read how you'd created your first piece as I'm a big fan of using bleach in my work to lift the colour and it looks superb here used with the brown ink. I also love your candles as that's another technique that I enjoy. Your work here is beautiful x
