Map of Happiness and A Blue Print by Penny

Morning peeps, I hope this one finds you all fit and well.  Today it's my turn to try and inspire you with a couple of my samples from last months tv shows.  

Map of Happiness.

For this card I have used stamps from the Wild Cornflower Blueprint, Make Your Mark, Haberdashery and Small Graph Paper sets; Distress Inks, sepia Versafine ink, and a stencil.

I took a piece of Drawing Cartridge  and stamped several images with Versafine ink,  I wanted to create a card with a masculine feel.  I used Distress ink to watercolour the images, stamped a sentiment then added ink around the edges of the card.

 On a piece of Kraft card I stamped the graph paper image and matted the focal panel onto it.  I  took a white base card and used DI through a stencil to colour it, then I attached the focal panel to the base card.  To complete the design I added a couple of images from the Make Your Mark set.

A Blue Print.

This time I have used stamps from the Wild Cornflower Blueprint set; black Versafine ink, watercolour pencils and a colour spray from my stash.

I took a piece of Drawing Cartridge and stamped a couple of images in Versafine ink.  I then masked the images and spritzed blue ink to create the background.  I removed the masks and watercoloured the images.

 I added a sentiment and blended ink around the edges before matting the panel onto blue card and attaching it to a white base card.

Thank you for dropping by today I hope you've enjoyed my post.  I'll be back again next month with some more crafty fun to share with you.

Until then take care and stay safe,

  1. Both cards look so bright and beautiful Penny and love the way you have used some background stamps and a great sentiment with the blueprint images, and the vivid blue goes wonderfully well with the pretty cornflowers on the second. x
