rhythm of life (by Veronica)

Good morning everyone, hope you all had a pleasant weekend and everyone who needed fuel got some.....

Today I have two wreath cards to share, using some of the smaller blueprint stamps from the September shows. 

These may look complicated, but if you have a stamping platform they are very easy. The first one uses two  flower stamps from the blueprint chrysanthemum set. The smaller stamps was inked in green ink and stamped 8 times to form the base of the wreath onto a square piece of white card. The larger stamp was stamped several times onto white card using a terracotta dye ink pad, and the colour dragged out with a waterbrush. I fussy cut these out, and decided to use 6 of them to add to the wreath shape - while we are always told to use odd numbers in flower arranging, I fwelt that 5 wasn't enough and 7 was too much, so 6 it was.  The sentiment is from the echinacea blueprint set.

This was even simpler. I used a very ancient multicolour ink pad to stamp the lupin image 8 times onto a piece of square white card. The centre image is part of the main image on the set, cut out with a punch and glued in the centre. I inked a mat of white card with a matching alcohol marker .



  1. So beautiful. I especially like your first card because of the colours that you've used, such a perfect combination x

  2. Two fabulous cards, love so much your use of the lovely stamps and the platform to build up the designs!

  3. Two fabulous wreaths Veronica, and both designs work brilliantly. I love the colours and great to make your own coloured mat with alcohol pens. Two very elegant looks. x
