by eck, it's echinacea (by veronica)

 Good morning everyone, hopefully the weather is better where you are!

Today I am sharing some samples using the echinacea blueprint stamps- or the eckythump stamps according to David....

My first idea was to decorate a small greyboard binder - by the time I had done it, I had worked out how to decorate it around the ready-fixed ring mechanism....... hopefully the next time I do this the result will be neater at least as I still have a binder to use.....

I had trouble using a brayer to add paint, so resorted to splodging paint on with a flat brush instead which doesn't give the same softer result. Next time I wil prop the binder up between two hardback books to give a level surface to work on ( and will also make sure I have enough desk space to lay the books out on as well!) I used three browny shades of paint, and then a darker brown over the edges and the the spine. I used black archival ink to stamp the large stamp and the smaller sentiment stamps, then stamped the image again onto white card and coloured the flowers with marker pens. The coloured image was fussy cut out and glued onto the binder

These are some of the inner pages of the binder using some the other blueprint stamps with pockets and tags or foldout pages as a change from ordinary pages.


  1. Fabulous cover and pages! Love the new echinacea blueprint stamp!

  2. This is brilliant Veronica and love all the different ways you have designed the pages with beautiful colours using these pretty stamps. A wonderful finished result. x

  3. Such beautiful artwork Veronica. I always find your work inspiring x
