Sepia Colouring Saturday...

Happy Saturday,

I'm sharing a card today I have made especially for the launch on Hochanda of my Language off flowers stamp collection and I thought i would share this sepia coloured daisy panel which, would you believe, is all coloured with shades of grey Graphmaster alcohol pens.














I will be sharing the technique on my Hochanda shows next week however the colours used are:
warm greys 0.5, 1 & 2 all totally the same but it gives a sepia or peach shade.

I stamped one of the corners from the Michaelmas daisy clear stamp set four times in an inverted square design as shown using London fog momento ink.  I then shaded the flowers and foliage using the greys and cut the piece out using the Sue Wilson Noble double pierced circles.  I mounted this over a circle cut with the same set in tan foundation card.  I then mounted this over a piece of stunning Kraft and Gold patterned paper form the brand new A6 DCWV kraft and gold paperstack.


Finally I made up the card as shown using the noble double pierced squares die for the pin picked layer along with layers of tan, kraft and coconut white foundation card.  I then added the sentiment, from the same set, cut this with the pierced dies and mounted this with a twist of ribbon on the bottom right.


Enjoy...

  19. Eh up John
    I was trying to picture this when you described it but your description didn't do it justice. Who would have thought greys would give the look of sepia. A lovely look.
    A busy day ahead for you but hope you enjoy it.

  34. Hi John. Great to see you at Ally Pally again today. As you probably guessed I fell in love with the Honeysuckle stamp and of course it found it's way into my shopping basket. Love today's card too and it looks as though the launch later this week is going to be a good one.
