Geometric Lily by Brenda

Good morning and welcome to our first post of February where myself and the Design Team will be showcasing the beautiful new Blueprint floral stamps designed by Lesley. They launched in our third birthday show and were an instant sell out, in fact the sold out in just seven minutes and then went to extended and further extended dispatch.

I will showcase all four stamp sets in this post and hope I can tempt you to pop over to the web site and treat yourself, I can assure you they are immense fun to work with and they all work in conjunction with one another, I had great fun pattern building with them.

The top card is fairly simple, there is so much detail in the stamps that you just need some colour to bring them to life. The focal image is the beautiful Calla Lily, stamps with Versafine black onto a Gelli Plate background (Distress Inks and Brusho's), a little colour added and the stand alone geometric image stamped outside to the top corner.

The background for this one is acrylic paint and gesso used through a stencil to add the flourishes. I used another stencil and texture paste to add the rays and sprinkled with glitter whilst still wet. The Sweet Peas Blueprint  was stamped with Versafine Clair, more Sweet Peas using the smaller image and the colour removed using bleach. The sentiment is from the Calla Lily set.

A tag using element from all four stamp sets, stamped onto panels coloured with Distress Inks and machine stitched around the edges, mounted onto a large tag and a seam binding bow. The sentiment is from the Sweet Peas set.

Another Gelli Plate background with the Wild Cornflower inked direct to stamp with Distress Markers, a little colour added to the blueprint using pencils and a sentiment from the Sweet Peas set stamped with Versafine Black onto a piece of Aida.

Another tag with a background of Distress Oxides, some stencilling, the Sweet Peas Blueprint stamped with Versafine Clair, coloured in with pencils, sentiment from the same set and  geometric elements stamped from the Freesia and Calla Lily sets.

Many thanks for popping in to visit today.
