Vintage Blueprints


Today I am showing some of my cards from the One Day Special on Hochanda  from September.

These are the second set in the Blueprint series and they are fabulous with so many images, quotes and sentiments to choose from.

There are 4 in the set - Allium Blueprint, Chrysanthemum Blueprint, Lupin Blueprint and Echinacea Blueprint.

I made this set of cards from the main stamp image of each set.

First I took some old paper from my stash, some were gardening related and some were architecture.

I then covered each page with white gesso to give me a good base to stamp on. I added some Distress Inks to the background and spritzed with water in places.

I then stamped my main image in Archival Ink and coloured with water colour pencils. I added some background stamping using Make Your Mark stamp set. 

I finished by adding the flower names, a number tag and a sentiment. These were then mat and layered onto some coordinating papers.

I'm sure you agree that these are wonderfully detailed stamps and suitable for many different occasions.

Thanks for looking
