One more monoprint and a couple of others

I’m scheduling this because I have a busy week ahead, but I will be checking to make sure it’s okay.

One more monoprint to show you – I hope I get chance to play again with this technique, we’ll see.

This one is made with a solid stamp, using pigment inks, stamping the flowers directly onto the stamp with Versafine ink, then embossing it all.

Difficult though it is to see, I used a sky blue and a pale green on the stamp, edged with True Blue.  I’m getting so frustrated with the fact that digital technology doesn’t recognise shade variations – this one’s a photo.  Should try with the SLR.  The bottom of the stamp is compressed – it must have been stored underneath others at some point, so it doesn’t stamp very well, so I added a piece of ribbon in a similar shade of blue to the edging, then edged the whole card before mounting onto pale blue.  Good old Hero Arts Solid stamps.

The next one I’ll enter into a few challenges for this week because it fits

Hels’ ‘Heart on my Sleeve’ challenge

 Make My Monday Romance theme and

Try it on Tuesday’s ‘Cards for a True Love’.

I love this stamp.  Can’t remember where I got him – could be one of the companies which was going out of business, possibly Scrolls Works? Or maybe Lost Coast or Stamp Camp. I’m in a dribby drabby mood at the moment, as you can see from the background.

I’ve had a bit of a ‘bird fest’ lately, although that’s not unusual for me cos I love birds and have a lot of bird stamps, so this was just another play, using Distress inks.

Thanks for all the lovely comments you’ve been leaving – they really are appreciated.  See you soon!

  1. Gorgeous cards Cath, love the bright popping colours on the middle one and the soft subtle colours on the others… am a colour tart lol Anyways… I had a woodie that misbehaved and got squished… so… armed with heat tool, I gently wafted it over the squished bit and the mounting foam did start to pop up a little bit… not perfect but worth a try… Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x
