Grungy Blueprint (by Julie)

Hello, today I have two cards to show you starting with a grungy style card that has been stamped using Wild Cornflower Blue Print

I spritzed some water colour card with water and dabbed on blue and cerise liquid inks. I dabbed it with some kitchen towel and once dry I inked up the stamp designs with grey and black Versafine inks to stamp across the background. I finished the design off by dabbing the edges with Antique Bronze Distress stain and then mounted onto black card-stock.

My second project uses Freesia Blueprint and the card was started by inking up the small freesia flower heads with Onyx Black Versafine which were then stamped around the edges of the base card. I stamped the main Freesia image onto spare stamping card and coloured with polychromos pencils and Distress inks. I cut my card to size and then stamped the set square ruler from Cala Lily Blueprint in opposite corners, before mounting onto black card and then adding to the base card.

Thanks for stopping by and please call back soon for more Design Team inspiration.

  1. Two stunning cards Julie and I love the look of the blueprints from the Cornflower set and the pretty blue and bronze washy background, and the flowers from the Freesia set as the beautiful main image, and love the all over pattern in the background too. x

  2. Lovely cards and the freesias are delightful!

  3. Two lovely pieces and I like your black stamping around the edge of your second card, It makes a lovely border x
