Chrysanthemum Stairway by Brenda

Morning Peeps, Brenda here to share a few more samples from Lesley's September Hochanda shows with the lovely new Blueprint stamps.

As is my usual route, inks and colours are the order of the day starting with Barn Door Distress Oxide brayered lightly onto the the background and then Chrysanthemum Blueprint stamped with Versafine black. I stamped the blooms a second time onto an offcut coloured with the same Oxide, cut out and paper pieced and the leaves coloured with Koh-i-Noor paint. Some texture paste stencilled to one side, a fee sequins, sentiment and some splats of white paint.

The background of this one has a thick brayered later of Actylic paint over which I used a stencil and gesso to add some interest. Blooms from Allium Blueprint and Echinacea  Blueprint stamped onto inked offcuts and cut out to place over strips of white card and a die cut oval. Sentiments from the same stamp sets and a couple of red 'splodges' using one of the worker stamps from Timeless.

Many thanks for you visit today.


  1. Both cards are beautiful Brenda and I love the Chrysanths on the first, and the second card using the Alliums and Echinacea, and all the flower heads paper pieced from lovely bright offcuts and both backgrounds made using interesting techniques with the texture paste and then the acrylic paint layered on the second. Beautiful colours and the added blueprint on the first and some die cuts, ink splats and an oval frame on the second finish these cards brilliantly. Thanks for the inspiration Brenda. x
