Lupins light up my life (by Rachel)

 Hello there! Rachel here today with some makes from the September shows - mostly focussing on the Lupin Blueprint stamp set. 

In this first sample I used a gell press background I had already made and added the decoupaged image on the top. Colouring of this was with watercolour pencils.

For this next card I got my coloured inks out and stamped and fussy cut lots of lightbulbs. Next I stamped a grey background using images from a few of the blueprint sets and then I arranged the lightbulbs to make a flower.

My next piece is a ceramic piece made using both the echinacea and the lupin blueprint stamped sets. I used glazes to paint onto the bisque fired pot before putting it in the kiln for a final blast!

My last card was made initially as a tag - using the lupin flower again - I did get a bit carried away with this one - coloured in water colour pencils. I then added it to a DL card I had stamped some of the words and blue print images onto...I was trying to achieve a bit of a parquet floor sort of effect!

I hope I have given you some inspiration of different ways to use your stamps!

Big hugs

Rachel xx

  2. Fabulous inspirations, love especially the flower you made with the lightbulbs, such creative way to stretch that stamp! The ceramic vase is a true beauty!

  3. Great techniques Rachel and love the gelli print background with the first pretty dimensionl flower and lightbulb, and how clever to make a flower with all the lighbulbs on the second, then your fabulous ceramics, and lastly a brilliant tag card with lovely bright colours and the corner ruler shapes in a brilliant pattern. x
