Sweetpea Blueprint and Heartfelt Bouquet by Penny

Goodly morning peeps, I hope that you are all still keeping fit and well, and coping with lockdown!  I think the lovely weather last month helped, let's hope it comes back soon.  Meanwhile I'm here with my first post of May, a couple of simple, pretty cards using the same stamp set - Sweetpeas Blueprint.

Sweetpea Blueprint.

As well as the beautiful stamps I have used Versamark ink, silver EP, blue Versafine Claire ink, and alcohol pens from my stash.

On a piece of dark blue card I stamped the technical images and embossed them in silver.  I used a silver pen around the edges of the card then stamped and embossed a sentiment onto the card.

I took a piece of smooth white colouring card and stamped the floral blueprint image in blue ink.  I then coloured the image with pens and cut it out.  I took a white base card and stamped a leafy image repeatedly down one edge in blue ink.  I attached the coloured image to the background panel then attached the panel to the base card.

Heartfelt Bouquet.

For this project I have used blue Versafine ink, Distress inks, and a sentiment from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle stamp set. 

On a piece of Drawing Cartridge I stamped the spray of Sweetpeas in blue ink then masked it and stamped twice more.  I removed the masks and used DIs to watercolour the images.  I blended some ink around the edges of the panel then matted it onto dark blue card.  On another piece of white card I stamped a leafy image repeatedly in blue ink.  I created a bow with the card, using a template from my stash. 

I used the blue ink to stamp a sentiment onto the focal panel, then attached it to a white base card.

Thank you for dropping in today, I hope you've enjoyed my post.  I'll be back later in the month with more crafty samples.

Until then keep healthy, stay safe, and keep crafting!
