greyscale (by Veronica)

 two more samples to show today using the lupin and chrysanthemum blueprint stamps from the September show.

I had a couple of pieces of grey card left over from previous cards, and decided to see how they worked with the koh-i-noor pencils and the blending solution.

For both versions I stamped the main image in black and clear embossed it before randomly stamping smaller images in grey ink round it to make a background.

For the lupin card just used the white and yellow pencils to colour the image, then added a touch of green to the flower centres and used the blending solution to spread the yellow over the light bulb. The sentiment was stamped onto spare white card.

The chrysanthemum flower was coloured with red, orange and yellow pencils blended together, and the leaves with 2 shades of green and a yellow, also blended with a little white added to the banister railing.

Both were matted onto white and black card before adding to a card blank.


  1. Two beautifully coloured florals Veronica, and the grey background on each works really well. x

  2. Lovely cards, these new stamps look great with any colour and love the technique you used!
