Chocolate Baroque Giveaway

Hi folks, happy Sunday to you all! I hope the weather is as lovely with you, as it is here. I'm here to tell you about a great giveaway over at the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog Glenda is giving away three sets of stamps,

Doodle Butterfly


Doodle Birds


Butterfly Dreams




To be in with a chance of winning a set of one these fabulous stamp plates you need to leave a comment either on the Design Team blog, or on one of the Design Team members' blogs, that includes mine! Glenda will then choose random commenters to receive the prizes.
You've already seen some samples on my Blog using these lovely stamps, but here is another one for you today.


I wanted an opulent feel to my card, so I stamped my bird onto the reverse of a metal oval, and embossed each line with an embossing tool while resting on a soft mat. I turned the oval over, and refined the lines. I then used alcohol inks to colour the metal, and gently swiped the raised areas with gold.
I created a tag by stamping a peacock feather in black Stazon Ink on an acrylic tag, and applying metal leaf to the reverse.
I used gold mirri card to mat my Artylicious backing paper, and my metal oval, and hung the tag from a piece of teal ribbon, using jump rings.
Thanks for stopping by today, and don't forget to visit the other Design Team members' blogs to see what they have been up to, Judith xx

That really is opulent - the combination of colours are wonderful. Using the metal is really unusual and it works so well. Oh for a clear desk and some free time...
