pensive (by Veronica)

Today I have samples using the very different and rather striking  Beauty is in the eyes stamp set. 

The first one is very simple, stamped in black versafine onto white card and coloured using a bluegrey pencil, trimmed down, a silvery grey mat onto a white card blank, and the sentiment stamped in black 

The second version was stamped onto a square of card coloured with distress oxides and texture added using a stencil. The image was stamped and coloured  using the brush  pens from Koh-i-noor. Sentiment  stamped in black, and some very elderly jewels added along with a black mat.

 A second share for this offbeat version, previously a separate post on my blog.  This was the first idea I had , and it took a bit of fiddling to get it to work!  In hindsight i should have just gone with the one hand to save the several attempts with acetate before I got a  a good print of the second hand, and i should have used a black ink too. I really liked the misty stencilled distress oxide background though, and I still like the moth from the Sacred set by Fiona Randall.


  1. Beautiful, love the stamp xx

  2. That lady is a beautiful image Veronica and the look with the large circles/bubbles gives a modern twist and love the monochromatic, so elegant, and then the brighter coloured look on the background paper is equally pretty, and then this great idea to have the circle held in the hands, and definitely worth the time and effort as it works well and the misty bokeh look of the background goes beautifully...that moth is gorgeous too. x

  3. Gorgeous cards, with wonderful images and designs.
