Wildflowers blue

This one is for my mother’s card stash. I try to keep her well stocked with cards but I know she is better than me at sending them  so she goes through them faster than I do. As soon as I finished this one I knew she would like it; we both love flowers with blue in them, cornflowers, hydrangeas, delphiniums. I used one of the silhouette flower stamps from the Darkroom Door set, ‘Wildflowers vol 2’.

I inked the top half of the stamp in blueprint sketch distress stain, spritzed it lightly and stamped several times across the panel. Next I inked the stems in the lower half of the stamp, and a few dots above that, with forest moss distress stain and again stamped across the panel. For some variety in colour I dabbed some dusty concord distress stain on the flower sections and stamped than over the floral area. You can see in the closeup, the stamping is quite loose but the overall effect is a garden of blue flowers. Just what I wanted.

I’ll be getting this one and some others in the mail to you soon, Mum 🙂

Supplies

Stamps: Wildflowers vol 2 (Darkroom Door)
Inks: blueprint sketch, dusty concord, forest moss distress stains (Ranger)

    Love it! That green in with the blue and purple really adds dimension. /always learn so much from you. Thank you again. My Mom loved blue flowers, too. They’re more rare, she said.

    Hi Heather! Sorry I haven’t been here in a while. I just love blues, too. Lovely job, just the right amount of colors of blues and purples, mixed with a touch of water. Your mum will just love this one! Take good care and keep on rolling all the beauty out for us to gush over :*
