blue and brown

The challenge this week on Make my Monday is to use blue and brown, which fitted in quite nicely as I wanted to have another go at this technique, that I came across in blogland a while ago- can't find it now, so if anyone knows, please tell me and I will add the link.
 Found it!
The  kraft base card is 6x6, and the large flower stamp from the SUI Everything Eleanor set was stamped in versamark and embossed with white EP 4 times using masks. the flourish from the same set was stamped in versamark and embossed with gold EP over the masks, and the small leaves from Just believe were inked with green marker.
The flowers were painted using a waterbrush and SU reinker in craft white, which was given a quick burst with a heat gun then left to dry properly overnight. Flowers were then painted with the waterbrush using ink from midnight muse and not quite navy inkpads, picked up directly from the pads.


  1. this is brilliant and just right for the challenge. The technique with the flowers is so effective.

  2. What a beautiful card I love it its so elegant

  4. The flowers looks lovely and the blue goes really well with the Kraft card hope you do well xx

  5. Very intriguing technique & your results are striking - especially with the blue, brown & white combined with your touches of gold.

  7. Oooh, this is really lovely Veronica. Pure coincidence but I was admiring some cards in just this style today in a craft mag I picked up from the supermarket yesterday. The main difference in technique seems to be the painting in white before adding the colour and I think it makes a very effective difference. I must have a go at this. It's very classy!
